YASUTO SASADA Astounds as New York Embraces Him Once Again
CATM and Blanc de Chine’s presentation of Yasuto Sasada was a raging success. Attendees included Grammy winner Nona Hendryx, photographer Patrick McMullan, model Fior Mendez, founding director of IDNF Yoshiko Ebihara and activist Julie Belafonte.
As the evening unfolded with revelry and celebration, Blanc de Chine transformed itself into a magnificently bold beast of inspiration. Here, for the first time, artist Yasuto Sasada broke the million dollar mark with the showing of his 5 panel creation, Fuzinraizinzu. In addition to his dedication to the great Japanese national treasure, Blanc de Chine was overtaken by a small fleet of futuristically mechanized horseshoe crabs. Sasada’s imagination went wild as his insanely detailed works fused and mimicked the finely tailored 2012 Fall/Winter line of the great classic Fashion House. The collision of
both worlds of fashion and fine art was masterly accomplished, resulting in a true New York event that saw even the most jaded in wonderment.
Yasuto Sasada is in the business of dreams: the pursuance of, the fulfillment of and the instillment of. He seeks the accomplishment of following a path less traveled with the knowledge and respect of his forebearers. Sasada covets opportunity and for him the act of creation has been his reward. By breaking with tradition, Sasada is paving the way for others. By showing through example Sasada is providing hope for future generations of Japanese artists in desperate need of encouragement.
Words cannot speak Sasada's language as its complexity is far reaching. His allegory of Man warns us of uncurtailed dangers that await us if technology is allowed to continue its course, consuming and eventually ridding Man of its own humanity through its continued hold and interdependence. It is this overbearing concern that Sasada has dedicated his work and heeds this warning.
Such altruistic goals, while reminiscent of the great thinkers of the 20th Century, is the new 21st Century thought and Sasada is holding its ground.
