Tokyo muralist paints gallery walls with beautiful dirt

I used to hear it all the time… “Don’t touch that,” “Wash you hands,” “That’s dirty!” A life lesson I’m glad I heeded in retrospect, even if it was a bit over dramatic. Japanese artist Yusuke Asai was apparently never given those warnings, and look how it turned out for him.

Asai is a muralist in the most natural form. He paints lively and whimsical scenes using nothing but dirt. He first collects soil, often from around his work site, and mixes it with water to create different consistencies and pigments to paint with. His work always seems to use an entire room or space sprawling across the walls like a lively animation. If you’re near Houston, Texas, stop by the Rice Gallery where Asai is making his American debut with a new series called Yamatane, ‘Mountain Seed.’
