VERDY Unveils Latest Solo Exhibition "Rise Above" With Kaikai Kiki GalleryA focus on his alter egos, VICK and VISTY.
Japanese graphic artist VERDY recently collaborated with Levi’s for a Wasted Youth and Girls Don’t Cry collection and is now set to debut his solo exhibition entitled “RISE ABOVE.” The renowned Osaka-born creative has been busy with a number of joint efforts these past months as he was also tapped for other clothing capsules with the likes of Zepanese Club and The Good Company, Sound Museum Vision and Contact as well as an eyewear series with NIGO’s JINS & SUN.
Numerous projects with other brands have blended with his own recognized brands, “Girls Don’t Cry” and “Wasted Youth” since he joined the VK DESIGN WORKS collective in 2007. For his latest showcase, VERDY’s iconic original characters VICK and VISTY — well noted in previous collaborations — will be presented in various shaped canvas paintings along with three-dimensional pieces for the first time ever in his career with the production aided by Kaikai Kiki’s studio.
“In this exhibition, I have projected these elements onto my alter egos, VICK and VISTY. In addition, I also created my first three-dimensional work with Kaikai Kiki Studio, and it turned out great, so I hope many people will see it and enjoy it,” as stated by VERDY.
The “RISE ABOVE” exhibition will run from November 19 to December 9. For more details, interested parties may visit Kaikai Kiki Gallery’s website.
