I found out about this guy from Jean Snow, but I thought he was such a cool artist, that I had to write about him myself ...
Kenji Murabayashi is a really cool and original Japanese wood sculptor. I love his work because he breaths new life into a old-fashioned art form, and makes it incredibly appealing. He has a show in Osaka currently called Pero's Farm, which looks really cool! I want to see it ... so ... cool!
Check out even more of his work right here ... really excellent!
