Yosuke Hasegawa

I started out with money origami, which I folded for fun. Over the next ten years, it developed into various forms of art using money. Everything in the world is dominated and controlled by the money system, and people can no longer escape it. The system of money, based on the virtual trust that mere paper has value, has created a disparate society that can be called classism and slavery. I would like to express the world of money, the greatest invention of mankind, from various directions with irony. After graduating from Musashino Art University, I worked as an advertising designer and CG illustrator before becoming an artist, and after the 311 disaster I moved to Bangkok, Thailand, and have been living in Taipei, Taiwan, for the past three years.
