Artist and designer Russell Maurice, widely known as the founder of London-based label Gasius, will display a new body of work for an upcoming solo exhibition at Tokyo’s SO1 Gallery. Titled “Crawl out from the fallout,” the presentation features hand-painted ceramic statues of morphed Snow White dwarfs, neon paint-splattered mushrooms, and more Frankenstein-esque creations.
Accompanying the ceramics is a series of mounted, acrylic-based works that house more of the artist’s creatures made of cut-up toy parts. With these works, the artist explores a psychedelic post-apocalyptic future with the show’s title inspired by a song from the band, Thee Oh Sees.
“Crawl out from the fallout” will run through March 19 until March 29 at the address below.
Elsewhere in art, Italian publisher Skira launched a retrospective book on famed Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.
