The PixCell-ated World of Kohei Nawa


Kohei Nawa employs an intriguing technique in the development of his sculptures – he’s created what he’s dubbed “PixCell” beads to completely cover found objects, so that what was once a perfectly defined shape is now distorted and magnified on various levels, changing the object itself and creating a sort of bubble aura or “husk of light” surrounding each piece. Using glass beads, glue, prisms, spray foam and plaster on taxidermied animals and other previously used vintage objects, he transforms their very essence into something truly remarkable and original.

Nawa also currently takes on other design projects that involve different techniques and mediums via the artist collective space that he’s founded called “Sandwich” and was even asked to create original headwear for Comme Des Garcons’ Spring & Summer 2012 runway show.
