Artist or Maker: Yuji Honbori (Japanese, b. 1958)

Literature: After graduated from sculpture division of Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music, Yuji Honbori continued his art creation while teaching the youngsters heading for art colleges. His works came to front at the Kobe Biennale in 2009 and 2010, and the solo exhibition at the INAX gallery in Tokyo 2010, when he represented the cardboard Buddha. Honbori's Buddha are produced all by used cardboard. It looks transmissive from the front and fragments of cardboard become stereoscopic from the side. It is significant to use the recycle material like wood, paper, newspaper and milk cartons for Honbori's works however its concept is more about metempsychosis in Buddhism rather than ecological issues. After he experienced the Great Hanshin Earthquake, he felt more hesitation in using new materials and found the used cardboard as his material. The strength of Honbori's works is in the gap of making the Buddha that people adore from the cardboard that finished its use.
