LY Partners With Avant Arte on Two New Artist EditionsEnter the drawing for your chance to purchase.
LY has built her career through a fictional character named LUV, who is placed in real-life urban situations. Inspired partly by the Tokyo-based artist’s own personal life, LY is set to unveil two new editions with Avant Arte.
Confused LUV ($4390 USD) shows LY’s unassuming character hunched over in gloom, anxiously looking out into the distance. Although isolation certainly was a theme in LY’s work prior to the pandemic, the sculpture is certainly reflective of the heightened despair that has been felt around the world. Made of bronze, the hand-painted sculpture is an edition of 50 and sizes in at 6.3 inches high and 8.3 inches wide.
The similarly titled, Still Confused ($2,309 USD), is a 16-color screenprint showing LUV in the same fetal position amidst an empty avenue dominated by a grayscale palette. The artwork is also an edition of 50 and printed on Somerset Tub Sized 410gsm paper with UV spot varnish details.
