Saturday night we open with two unbelievable shows. Yoshitaka Amano, the legendary and influential Japanese artist and animator is going to be complimented by our own rising star Yoskay Yamamoto.
Yoskay is putting in a huge installation in our Project Room and debuting his first limited edition sculpture - a cast resin wall mounted 'Face.' We are releasing these at the gallery on Saturday and don't expect to have them last more than a few minutes...
Join us this weekend.
