Amazing Japanese Artist And Designer, Tokujin Yoshioka

by Sherry Riter in Art  

Tokujin Yoshioka was born in 1967 and started his design firm in 2000.

His artistic works cover a large range in art, design and architecture. Many of his works have been permanent collections in major museums of the world.

I thought this was an applicable collection since we are about to move into winter. Pull your coats, gloves and scarfs on as we look at some beautiful art!

Of course, my favorite artistic creation by Tokujin Yoshioka simulates a snowstorm. With a 15-meter-wide installation, Yoshioka’s project ‘snow’ is absolutely awesome. It replicates a snow scape obtained by hundreds of pounds of light feathers blowing and falling down slowly to look like a snowstorm.

Yeah, awesome.

Totally awesome.

The simulated snowstorm should be installed on one of your walls so that you can look at it all year long — especially on those hot summer days when you have the urge to take off all your clothes and eat mangoes! 🙂
