About the work

Brazilian, b. 1989

Yuli Yamagata uses fabric to create fantastical two- and three-dimensional works, often featuring details of distorted faces or bodies as the subject of her work. Yamagata’s use of bold color and cartoonish protruding pieces in her wall works, as well as her focus on quotidien objects, is reminiscent of Pop art. She works on canvas and paper to create sculptures, paintings, and drawings that all embrace a similar sense of theatricality: Her wall-hanging work Polvo (2020) depicts an octopus in bright greens and purples, its tentacles draping over the edges of the canvas, and her sculpture Finger (soft) (2018) shows an outlandishly long finger curled into a spiral, the fingernail painted a deep red. Her depictions of lips, legs, and nails call into question concepts of taste, consumption, and self-image. Yamagata lives and works in São Paulo.
