Makoto Egashira

I am quite pattern phobic, so this work by Makoto Egashira does give me the hebbie geebies, However, I still think his kitch work is incredible. Makoto makes installations and sculptures from floral print rococo blankets.
“When I was living on my own, a friend came over and told me, ‘The room is nice but your blanket is uncool." Makoto Egashira
This was the start of Makoto's exploration of the clash and mix of western and eastern cultures through the medium of the rose printed blanket which became popular in Japan after the second world war.
