Kazuya Sakai

At the Dallas Museum of Art, visitors with red-green deficiencies can now check out a pair of color blindness alleviation lenses at no cost.

Kazuya is one of the artists included (posthumously). Born in Buenos Aires to Japanese parents, he spent the majority of his youth in Japan, studying literature and philosophy. Upon his return to Argentina in 1951, Sakai, a self-taught painter, dedicated himself to the visual arts. He saw in his artwork—as in himself—a unification of Eastern and Western elements. His first works were geometric in style, reflecting the pivotal influence of Argentina’s Concrete Art Movement.

Maki Ueda

catches the attention of Eva Díaz at the World Perfumery Congress (yes you read that right). Maki is an olfactory artist. As a creative that (tries to) focus on the viewer’s sense of sight, I am so here for her work- and she makes aromas whose application on a surface changes in black light (below)!
