"Yasuhiro Sawada Exhibition"

This is one of the pieces I exhibited in my first exhibition. The theme of the exhibition was, "How can the act of 'painting' be fixed onto a piece of paper through a system of 'printing'?" I extracted various shapes and forms of the human body and stylized them with simple symbols. Each piece was painted in actual size (B1) and double-printed in 4-color offset. Sixteen B1 sheets were used to represent the entire body.
