Beyond the Streets on Paper: A Conversation with Yusuke Hanai

There has been a lot of art creating over the past year that speaks to the human condition, our uncertainty, our universal fears and concerns. Japanese-based artist Yusuke Hanai doesn’t literally create art based on the current state of the world, or hit you in the face with a political message. His works are quiet, unifying in their simple emotions, often depicting a type of sadness or even care that is rare. Known for his collaborations and now and increasingly refined fine art practice, the surfing-crazed artist is beginning to make waves in the art world.
