Yukihisa Isobe1935-

Isobe started his career making prints in 1950' and created repetitiously emblems using materials such as plaster mixed with marble, emboss, and water color drawings and prints. After moving to New York in 1965, he was taken by environmental and ecological interest studying at University. At that time, he tried to integrate graphics and colors used in these scientific field with expression in the art, introducing plan and maps as a repetition into his works. He was closely related to Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale from the beginning, where he installed a number of yellow poles to indicate the original position of Shinano River (2000) or to visualize the mad slide (2015). Art Front Gallery is in charge of the works of Yukihisa Isobe except for the works already in the collection.
