My shoot with legendary Japanese artist Mr. Shuji Mukai for the Whitestone Art Gallery.
Mr. Shuji Mukai was part of the radical post-war Gutai art group who challenged the conformity that had contributed to the authoritarianism of the preceding decades.
The Gutai group used art as an act of radical individualism, pushing boundaries of originality...."Create what has never been done before!"
Mr. Mukai created an art intsallation for the new Louis Vuitton store which opened in Soho, New York; covering the store with his symbols. For the grand opening of Chanel’s Tokyo new building in December 2017, designed by Peter Marino, Mukai covered the whole building with his art.
It was an honour to meet and photograph him.
