‘RAIN’ by Yusuke Hanai x AllRightsReserved
Don’t let the rain go down on you… unless you are made of vinyl!
Discover ‘RAIN’, the latest sculpture by Yusuke Hanai in collaboration with the Hong Kong-based studio AllRightsReserved.
‘RAIN’ shows a character with a green raincoat, the hood on and an uncertain expression waiting in the rain. Does he like to go for a walk underwater? Is he relieved because it's waning? The artist makes us wonder about his situation and shows us once again one of the characteristics of the protagonists of Yusuke Hanai's works: great joy is not shown effusively, but the viewer can feel a certain hope with it.
Hanai’s style mixing Japanese aesthetics with American retro illustration on paintings and drawings works very well on this sculpture perfectly finished. The mate colours on the vinyl make the figure combine perfectly with other sculptures of the artist like Down but Not Out or We’ll Fly Again or even his Bearbricks.
AllRightsReserved and Yusuke Hanai released this limited sculpture (only 500 units) to celebrate the artist’s largest solo exhibition outside his country Japan. Yusuke Hanai's “FACING THE CURRENT” Exhibition in Shanghai will be open from 23 Jan to 22 Feb 2022 at Hall 5, Powerlong Museum, Shanghai.
