Paul Cox delves into many creative realms – from colorful conceptual installations and stage sets to illustrations that tell stories. In Japan, he is garnering attention for his illustrations produced for local clients, such as his works for the new Hokuriku Shinkansen Line in 2015 and for LUMINE’s 2013 Christmas campaign. For this exhibition at CREATION Gallery G8, Cox reconfigured works he originally debuted at his “Aire de jeu” show at Studio Fotokino in Marseille.
