Shun Kawakami(artist/conductor of design/representative of artless Inc.), is proud to announce the publication of the artist’s first collected works, between art and design on June 17th(Friday).

As the head of branding agency artless Inc., Shun Kawakami has made a mark in multiple fields including branding, web design, film, exhibition design, product, architecture, interior design, signage, and spatial design; combining design with an art based approach. While working on projects in Japan and abroad, he also has had a successful career as an artist, known for his distinctive style and approach to art and design.

While taking cues from traditional Japanese aesthetics, best exemplified by ‘ma’ or ‘empty space’, Shun Kawakami has adopted the modern technique of ‘graphic collage’, merging elements of photography and drawing to create a unique synthesis of traditional and modern art. Throughout his body of work, he explores the theme of ‘a recursion to Japanese aesthetics, and a synthesis of design and technology’ to pursue a ‘state of beauty’ and a ‘singular expression.’

The book feature works that were exhibited at GYRE; Omotesando, tokyo in 2012. between art and design will immerse readers into the works of Shun Kawakami, where multiple disciplines are traversed and art and design is synthesised to create something wholly original and singular.
