Japanese artist Minoru Ohira repurposes found materials and construction waste to create large sculptures that utilize a mix of textures to form dynamic and contrasting shapes. Using the influences of his Japanese upbringing, Ohira combines Japanese culture with abstraction in his delicately balanced work.
Ohira’s wide range of woodworking techniques are put in stark contrast with the smooth graphite surfaces and slate pieces. The work evokes a duality with rugged textures and meditative carvings that fuse together Japanese and contemporary design aesthetics.
