Orange Dog & Prince and Princess by K-NARF

I love huge, beautiful pieces of art, but I don't have a wall at home big enough to hang anything large, so we've started a little trade with our friends over at the Clic Gallery. We get to choose a lovely, huge photograph to adorn the front wall of our office every two months, and then we post it here and share it with you. Click below to see both of these in our office (these were our favorites so far) and find out what they are.

"For the past ten years K-NARF has exhibited his work in many countries including Japan, Australia, France, Singapore, USA and Italy. His career is also the result of a series of unexpected encounters: In early 2000 when he moved to Tokyo, he met Teruo Kurosaki, one of the most influential persons on the local creative scene, who gave him the opportunity to hold his first exhibition. He then happened to meet with Daniel Moquay, the Director of the Yves Klein Estate, as well as Joel Meyerowitz, pioneer of color contemporary photography and Jacques Attali, French intellectual and writer. All of them, despite a generation gap shared his vision of photography and offered him support.

His exhibitions, often taking the form of ephemeral installations, are shown without distinction in plants still in operation, old theatres, galleries, art biennales or abandoned garages. Amongst other places, his work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Scottsdale (Phoenix, Ariz.), the Museum of Sydney, the Japan Foundation for the Arts, the Yves Klein Archives, the French Embassy in Tokyo (No man's land art project) as well as the Arles photo festival, the Issey Miyake Gallery in Paris and at the Venduto Art event in Milano."
