LY’s trademark character LUV drifts through city life taking great care of the things they love.
A new composition, With his sidekick, recalls the artist’s memories of skate culture in Tokyo as a teenager. Often seen clutching their most cherished possession, a skateboard deck, LUV is rendered in greyscale to echo the urban sprawl of Tokyo.
“I saw skaters carrying around their skateboard deck wherever they went, thinking it must be such a precious thing for them!”
With his sidekick will appear alongside a series of unseen original works at an upcoming show in Tokyo. Visit the Collective for a personal tour of the show with LY on 23/09/22.
