Contemporary Art Monday: Issey Miyake

miyake1

I saw one of Miyake’s pieces at the MOMA and I thought that it was interesting, so I wrote his piece down and copied it in my sketchbook. I didn’t realize until I was researching him tonight that he is actually a fashion designer, but that’s just another type of art right? He has this obsession with geometric design and some of the lines that he creates through his designs are just so cool!
This is the piece that I saw:

These two pieces are lamps, really intense origami lamps!
I love how he applies these patterns and shapes into his fashion pieces.

You can see these in his 2001 Spring Fashion Collection:
