ARTIST Yu Seto
Sculptor. Born in 1994 in Odawara City, Kanagawa Prefecture. He considers natural science and creates sculptures that mainly feature wild animals as motifs. The terracotta (earthenware) material used for the sculptures allows the artist's sense of touch and trajectory to appear directly on the surface, creating a dynamic work. We provide a wide range of works domestically and internationally, mainly through exhibition and sales at galleries.
