Inevitably Imperfect II: Akira Miyamoto!

07.29.2015 – Art can’t be defined but a diverse visual creation expressed by individuals who breaks the boundaries of imagination.

I rarely write about my appreciation for art here, but this one has caught my senses and it’s weird.

Earlier today Vinyl on Vinyl Art Gallery unveiled a collection of works for the “Inevitably Imperfect II” art show, which featured local and foreign talented individuals. This includes one the most imperfectly unique creations that certainly chilling and interesting…

The Vinyl on Vinyl art gallery is located at a warehouse a huge one to be exact and they’ve been there sometime in 2013. It’s big enough to have various works get featured in specific section of the gallery.

There’s one part that really raised some hair on the back of my spine. Its taught provoking that gave some chills at the same time opened some perspectives about its creativity. Those creations are from the talented hands of Akira Miyamoto a first time visitor from the Philippines and his second solo show in another country.

I got introduced to him and learned about the process on how he created these impressive sculptures. He gave details on how he put together those real-life eyes from simple materials like metal enamel eyes and Japanese pigments all handcrafted. The head sculptures are made from Cherry wood and it took him two months to make one. Miyamoto-san explains how he put together those scary realistic eyes and claims it was trial and error to get that perfect look.

The section that housed his works consists of five sculptures and six framed hand drawn artworks. Some of those drawings have become the sculptures that are getting quite an attention. I’m basically impressed at the same time getting some hair-raising experience specially the head that’s rested in the middle of a pillow.

Their life-like eyes are the one that gives his sculpture a realistic appearance that certainly handcrafted and the Japanese are talented with wood carvings. Akira Miyamoto is delighted to hear what gallery visitors are saying about his work.

Akira Miyamoto is one of the artists present earlier along with Jana Brike, which also feature the works of Dan Barry, Edward Robin Coronel, Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy, Lynyrd Paras and Dexter Sy.

Inevitably Imperfect II” will be on exhibit from July 29 to August 16, 2015. For more details about the art show LIKE Vinyl on Vinyl on Facebook, follow on Instagram, and Twitter at: @VinylonVinyl
