■Key Visual Concept
The works in artist Kensei Yabuno’s “Alien Series” show a variety of expressions depending on the angle.
The work he created for the JFW has a intriguing form that must be seen to be believed.
With several eyes painted on its body, this Alien comes alive with an almost-living expressiveness to those who see it.
This objet combines a variety of expressions with a very unique original font layered atop it; the sight of it carries a surprising strength of appeal to the viewer, while also invoking the true nature of this creation.
