The AR exhibition will be displayed in the Times Square streets of the Times Square streets, such as Hiroshi Mori's three -dimensional figure work, a 2D art "JAPANESQUE" series that combines Japanese paintings and anime paintings. In the work, you can experience on the city scale that is not in reality. Please experience Times Square colored with three -dimensional figure and 2D art works.
Hiroshi Mori was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1977.
He graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2013 with a Master's degree in Oil Painting Techniques and Materials.
He uses parodies to create his artwork and converts the traditional golden backgrounds of religious paintings into a manga style using the latest industrial technology.
His work is a "mischievous" combination of existing imagery, such as references from classics, pop art masterpieces, anime, manga, and video games. Through these works, he pursues what it means to be original in art. Supported by XYZA.io
“He who does not work, neither shall he eat.” It’s an old saying in Japan as well. Since the Internet began, we have had almost unlimited freedom of working if you can work online. However, it means we have a situation to work anywhere, 24/7, unless we are disconnected from Wi-Fi or reception... We had been working to eat; however, I could say we set the state we are preyed upon by working because of an unlimited working environment. I want to ask all celebrities who entertain us with virtual reality on the internet, such as YouTubers, Instagrammers, and NFT artists. Who will be the first human being to escape this paradoxical game to regain true freedom?
