ARTIST OF THE WEEK

n°215/ John Yuyi

April 2017

by Nathalie Azoulai

Who's that girl? A graphic designer? A contemporary artist? An Instagram creator? In between the uncanny inventiveness of a Marcel Duchamp and the playfulness of a millennial teen, Taïwan-born John Yuyi offers new media to art and design like skin and face and human body. From tattoos to piercings and trompe l'oeil patterns, she plays both with our sensory archaisms and our social network mania, and makes a real revolution: to give back its physicality to virtuality.
