Mutant Heroes and Villains – Sculptures by Takahiro Komuro

The sculptures of artist Takahiro Komuro feel conspicuously out of place in the real world. They nearly seemed to have been plucked from the video games, cartoons, and comics of a twenty-somthing’s childhood.  Mutant superheros and villains, video game bosses, the often dramatic story lines of each perhaps reflected the anxieties of our parents at the time.  Komuro’s sculptures capture this strange balance of youth and play on the one hand and deeper fears on the other.
