UK-based JR CHUO is a paper cut and spray paint artist whose work explores the notion of façades in society that conceal harsh realities. His work is inspired by the tragic beauty and striking colours found in dying coral. CHUO cuts all of his designs by hand – thousands of individual shapes work in harmony to form large, seamless designs. The artist’s latest piece, Rappongi Reef, will be exhibited at the Tokyo International Art Fair, 8-9 October.
