electric poles arragements

Akira Yamaguchi, Independent Reserach (the Art of Electric Pole Arrangement) 2008

At recently held G-Tokyo exhibition-style art fair Akira Yamaguchi presented new series entitled Chukado (The Art of Electric Pole Arrangement). Chukado is an aesthetic approach to electric poles, often despised for ruining the landscape, by arranging them in the style of a Japanese ikebana. As well as in his previous works he combines the techniques of classical Japanese painting with the humor and draftsmanship of a manga cartoonist.
