Meguru is a NY-based Japanese artist (Tokyo, 1984).
He is much more focused on brushstroke, and he transcends and evolves the existing framework of canvas.
Through the technique of what he calls “Cut & Paste,” Yamaguchi achieves a uniquely chaotic, vibrantly intense and visually robust abstraction on various surfaces. The method entails laying out paints on plastic sheets to dry, then peeling it off and pasting them onto another surface as if collaging to create shapeless shapes and formless forms.
He has been collaborating with US brands such as Stussy, FTC, ALIFE, and Chari&Co NYC, NIKE and UNIQLO. He has previously participated in numerous exhibitions including shows at Kinfolk 94, +81 gallery in NY, Ace Hotel NY ,Hidari Zingaro and HHH gallery in Tokyo.
Everything I have experienced is portrayed in my artwork. Similar to Vans’ “Off the Wall” motto, I strive to think outside the box and create unique pieces.Meguru Yamaguchi
