He sometimes copies straight from the piece that’s inspired him, but the composition changes as he works on it; adding in his favourite names, lipsticks and shoes.
In his work, Ueno is particular about the gestures of fashion models, their clothing and the colours they wear. He will repeatedly experiment by drawing and re-drawing lines and painting several layers until he is satisfied with the finished product. His finished designs have a range of unique colours, and are filled with important details.
Ueno has a strong sense of beauty. For him, beauty is symbolised by women and the fashion items they wear. His strong sense of beauty is embodied in his work, where he creates beautiful woman and figures. Many of the female faces in his drawings somehow resemble his own face.
Ueno’s works are in the ABCD Collection in Paris, and have been exhibited in Japan, Los Angeles USA, Prague and France.
