Chu Enoki

Seriously. Chu Enoki is freaking amazing. I don’t know a whole lot about him because his biography is entirely Japanese. Except for the numbers, those are entirely in American. Jokes aside, Enoki practices my favorite kind of art. Art that meets the basic aesthetic requirements to be pleasing to the eye, but has the majority of its creator’s effort based in thought or thinking about what the piece is. So not necessarily paints or even surfaces. They may be photographically based art (capital A) or they may simply be cheap photographs on disposable cameras to document a moment in all time that the artist created.

I love the piece to the right, called 2.3.7.8 TCDD Propagation Dioxin a lot. Only slightly more than RPM 1200 (above it), even though RPM 1200 is clearly a labor of love. It’s basically comprised of a bunch of scrap metal, drill bits, discs, all polished and shined (and I’m thinking painted?) and turned into a cityscape. Ridiculously cool. He makes my brain smile.
