Japanese artist Jun Kitagawa is spreading his fascinating three dimensional zipper art around public spaces in Japan. His venture into art was accidental after a failed clothing business he decided to 'clothe' nude statues with his oversupply of clothing; this became a spectacle and kickstarted his venture into the art world.
Kitagawa's latest project is an ongoing series in which giant three-dimensional zippers are placed around the city. Kitagawa says his motive is in offering an intimate look that not only surprises but leaves us thinking and imagining. Some of these spectacles include walls, lakes and rooms. The actual project is still ongoing and these are only a few of the displays that are released so far.
Jun Kitagawa's public works of 3-D zipper art is both creative and thought-provoking.
