NONCHELEEE "LIL COBRA TOP"

OCT 7 - 29, 2023

This will be his first solo exhibition in Osaka.

NONCHELEEE is an artist based in Fukuoka and is attracting attention for his unique style. His work is full of humor and individuality, and his distinctive portraits are especially impressive. His works contain subtly sexy and surreal elements that are entertaining and thought-provoking.

This exhibition introduces part of the story of how discarded objects are given new life in NONCHELEEE's art. A long time ago, he came across a special item called "COBRA TOP," a radio cassette player discarded by the roadside. The beauty created by this encounter is the source of this exhibition's charm.

COBRA TOP, released in 1993, may now seem very rustic and unfinished. However, it has given his work a unique resonance over the course of 30 years. Its sense of incongruity and charm harmonized with the tatami room of his old apartment at the time, and it became a symbol of his origins of simplicity and luxury.

NONCHELEEE's style embodies the harmony of aesthetics and individuality. Please come and discover new emotions while interacting with his works. We hope you will enjoy the journey of beauty and creativity created by the special item COBRA TOP.
