toilet paper rolls

yuken teruya is an artist who's main motif is to manipulate everyday objects with hope to transform their meanings to reflect on contemporary society and culture. cutting trees out of paper bags and cardboard toilet paper rolls, he goes on to develop intricate pieces of art embodying a small and enchanting world of its own, all to relate to a more broader concern. each project, be it a paper bag or a roll, shapes of trees are created without adding or removing anything, but just the cutting and folding from the paper on the bag or roll itself.

on a higher note, teruya uses his work to explore issues around growing consumerism of contemporary society, depleting natural resources and other problems associated with globalism. teruya also has a passion for addressing threats aimed at local cultural traditions and identities.
