Texture of Life
Texture of Life

Yukako Sakakura’s London debut ‘Texture of Life’ at Reading Room Gallery, Soho, explores the link between fine art and the theatrical moods behind an apparel designers palette.

With sharp-intensity and dark colour, she obsessively draws a mini character of herself, Kako, in a narrative that chases the emotions of her childhood memories under each thought-provoking title. Using acrylic paints on canvas and ancient sumi ink on paper, this is the first time that the Glasgow and Vienna School of Art graduate has stretched her work onto giant 91 cm canvases, retailing at £4,500. Sakakura has already held international exhibitions in Japan, Scotland, England, France and Germany, and she returns with her next collection during the next London Fashion Week.
