KUSAKA – WOOD

Every New Year, we too, try to start on a new level of coolness and the Kusama-Wood dynamic is stimulating.

The power couple (married for almost 14 years!) not only have two little bundles of joy, but also create beautiful art together. Jonas Wood, a former psychology graduate (holding a MA in fine arts too) and now superstar painter, married to Shio Kusaka; a distinctive potter and former artist’s assistant (together represented by the King, Larry Gagosian).

Kusaka and Wood have had some great moments so far, with Shio’s 2014 Whitney Biennial and Jonas’s 2015 Gagosian solo show in London and permanent collections at the Saatchi Gallery in London and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. They also exhibited together (couples that show together, stay together) in Hong Kong last year, JONAS WOOD AND SHIO KUSAKA: BLACKWELDER.

Now you may dive into highly creative visuals. We do warn you, these works may awaken your long hidden, inner child.
