UltraSuperNew Gallery is honored to present ‘Plastic Party’ a solo exhibition by Yeka Haski.

While on a surfing trip, Yeka experienced swimming in a sea of litter on the beaches of Bali. Inspired by this episode, Yeka has strived to find ways to talk about the topic of waste. In this solo exhibition, Yeka integrates her whimsical characters on discarded materials like plastic bags and objects creating art pieces that explore creativity in new forms. In repurposing materials, she instills a renewed significance into “trash” and in doing so, stirs a conversation about how we consume and produce waste today. Yeka will display small to large scaled paintings, one of which features ’blue sheets,’ a plastic mat commonly used during picnics in Japan. In painting on the ‘blue sheets,’ she transforms a generic material, often turning into quick waste into a work of art. Utilizing the allure of her art, she encourages her audience to have conversations about the environment and how we can start living “cleanly”.  

Come and join us as we explore Haski’s playful approach to conscious-living. The Opening Reception will be held at the UltraSuperNew Gallery in Harajuku from Thursday, June 21st from 7:00pm – 9:30pm.
