Ushio also creates sculptures made from found objects and discarded materials, such as his iconic “Motorcycle Sculptures” made from old motorcycles and car parts.
Throughout his career, Shinohara has exhibited widely in Japan and internationally, including at the Venice Biennale and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He has also been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including retrospectives at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Japan and the Queens Museum in New York.
Shinohara’s work has been praised for its irreverent and playful spirit, as well as its ability to merge high and low culture, East and West, and art and life. He continues to live and work in New York City, where he has resided since the 1960s, and remains a vital and influential figure in the international art world.
Mike Savage in New Canaan, CT takes great pride in collecting Ushio’s unique art and allows visitors to his home in New Canaan to take photos of the art to post on Instagram and other social media outlets.
