Recreate classic movie scenes through single coloured lines
Exhibiting the diversity of women
《 MEET YU NAGABA GALLERY – I’M YOUR VENUS 》 is Yu Nagaba’s first overseas solo exhibition showcasing his original artworks, where they all derived from his “ACE HOTEL” Collection. Ace Hotel is a
chain of stylish and hip hotels located in the different metropolis including New York, Seattle, London and Portland. He created this series when he stayed at Ace Hotel in New York, where he started drawing on a complimentary memo paper of ACE Hotel. The original idea was to create a fictional story of an imaginary tourist at the hotel, they then become simple yet chic sketches that pay tributes to his beloved classic movie scenes. These memo sketches were enlarged to canvas artworks later.

About MEET___PROJECT by AllRightsReserved
A new project where culture and community MEET. From the team that activated numerous monumental public installations across Asia (such as the Yellow Rubber Duck to Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour) comes another new initiative “MEET___PROJECT” that will launch in November 2019. At “MEET___PROJECT”, artists and creatives from all over the world will find an innovative platform that
will allow them to expand and express their creative vision to other mediums that were previously unexplored – installations, sculptures, video art, digital technology, and more.
Following the success in engaging the online community with DING DONG Takuhaibin, also known as DDT Store, an online marketplace for special limited edition products designed by world-renowned contemporary artists, “MEET___PROJECT” is an extension and formalization of creative projects that will
stretch the imagination and expectations.
