Mr. Genki (1985) | ? | Contemporary art
Raised with soy sauce and Japanese television, Mr. Genki has no home. Attracted by the flashing lights of megalopolis such as Tokyo, New York or Paris, he revolves around them, sometimes closes his eyes to see what is behind their frenetic activity: small connected colored dots.
The bigger the dots, the more synthetic or symbolic the result is. At the extreme, with just a few dots here and there, Mr. Genki wishes to draw on people's subconscious to call their buried souvenirs and emotions. Mr. Genki's peculiar technique makes him a sticker! People say he is good with numbers and that he knows how many stickers he uses on each of his works.
