※ ヴィニー・ナイロン来日決定!!

この度、WISH LESS gallery では、イギリスのグラフィティアート界を築いた伝説的なアーティスト、ヴィニー・ナイロンの日本初となる個展を開催いたします。
ヴィニーの制作における主題は、生涯にわたり続ける”収集”へのこだわりであり、特に戦後生産された50〜60年代製のバッジ、アニメーション、おもちゃ、広告物などが重要な要素となります。彼の作品は、ビンテージのビニール人形や広告マスコットによって演じられる物語です。絵の中には、Valvo, Soda pop, Lucky boy, Bright spark and My-T-Toof といった、ヴィニーが創作したキャラクターが度々登場します。それらは、どこかで見たことのあるお馴染みのキャラクターばかり。ヴィニーは、消費文化の象徴的アイコンを独自の解釈で歪ませ、新たなキャラクターへと昇華させていくことで、大衆化された唯一の存在をヴィニーの物語の主役にしてしまうのです。

Vinnie Nylon/ヴィニー・ナイロン
イギリス出身のアーティスト。フリーハンドで描かれるストイックなラインを駆使し、ポップでノスタルジックな作品を多く発表。80年代初頭のイギリスで、グラフィティアートをいち早く始め、後に人気となるバンクシーなど多くのアーティストに影響を与えた。ビンテージグッズ収集家でもあり、50〜60年代の古い人形やおもちゃなどをモチーフに起用。また、多岐に渡るブランドや企業とのコラボレーションプロジェクトなどにも積極的に行っている。2012年、ロンドンのギャラリー High Roller Society にて個展を開催。



Vinnie Nylon has been writing graffiti since 1985, coming from a background of the peace movement, punk and skateboarding in which he had painted slogans and stencils even as a young boy in the early 80s prior to the so called era of Subway Art.

Much of the subject matter of Vinnie Nylon’s paintings is the product of a lifelong collecting obsession with post war products, badges, cartoons, toys and advertising media. Stories are acted out by a cast of vintage vinyl dolls and advertising mascots. Icons of consumer culture have been reinterpreted and given his personal twist, a roll call that includes Valvo, Soda pop, Lucky boy, Bright spark and My-T-Toof.

Previous clients and publication includes Thames and Hudson, Graphotism, Sony playstation, Foster’s ice beer, Granada Television, Garage magazine, Hip Hop connection, 50-50 skateboards, Anglia television, Penguin books, Reebok shoes, Environment agency, Dope clothing, Groovetech, Thursday club records, Wildcat body piercing, Walkabout foundation, Juice magazine (Germany) and Paul Oakenfold.

300 Words: How is Japan?

Sooooo how is Japan?,
Three hundred words is not enough to even begin….
Nine days was no where near enough time either ….not enough time to describe the visual cacophony
of light and sounds that greets the first time traveller upon reaching down-town Tokyo….but that’s another story…I digress.

One of the subtlest things I loved about JApan was the colour co-ordination, the colour combo’s, which you
see everywhere, on everything, a certain sense of style, finess & finish, everything seems considered…
And everyone does their best, works their hardest…maybe sometimes too hard…you feel like saying to some people just chill out, let your hair down…

I got some big smiles from nearly everyone, and especially at the Onsen where people seemed to have most fun…that was real cool,
Seeing old folk sneaking beer into the baths, and chuckling when they got caught, the mountain people know how to live…

I love the architecture,
I love the treatment of nature
I love the fact that everything was so alien to me,
It could have been the age of Edo 150 years ago…
No wonder so many westerners have been inspired by Japan for so long.

It’s like no where else on earth and I’d do anything to go back,
Maybe paint something there..
See the whole country from top to bottom…
And bring all my friends.

There’s something for everyone.

Duuuuuuuuuude X
