Mayumi Yamase is a Tokyo-based artist whose practice is the summation of human and abstract themes, given life through whimsically colourful and organic forms. After producing works for
Reception, COMME des GARÇON HOMME PLUS S/S 2017 and MAN/WOMAN show in Paris, Yamase's creations find themselves on a variety of surfaces from footwear, textiles and paper. After her recent holiday in Europe, Mayumi has a quick chat with Norse Store about where she came from, and how curiosity plays into her creative process.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
I just completed the designs for two T-shirts for BEAMS T and these will be available soon. Also coming soon is a capsule I did for FABRICK© / Medicom Toy. I am now working on a few other exciting collaborative projects along with a solo show at Isetan in Shinjuku and another in Europe.
