Uehara and Watanabe first began working as a team in 1999. Together they have been involved in a number of distinctive projects, including direction at D-BROS – a venture began by DRAFT Co., Ltd. to pursue new approaches to products from the standpoint of the graphic designer.
This exhibition, which coincides with the establishment of their new company, will introduce the projects that Uehara and Watanabe have been involved in up to the present. The exhibition title “KIGI” means “trees”, which is a symbol of creation that they chose as their company name with the hope that their creative “tree” might one day grow into a lush “forest”. The works on display, spanning across all genres, probe new approaches in graphic endeavor.
