OSAMU WATANABE: ART WORKS -- SWEET OR UNSWEET? BNN, Inc., Tokyo, 2012. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 83 col. ills. and 65 col. reference ills. 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9784861008108 Bilingual in English and Japanese.
Osamu Watanabe: accomplished contemporary art curator by day, eccentric cake decorator by night. With what looks like effortless ease, this master of the pastry bag creates massive sugary art installations that inspire both awe and hunger. From Hello Kitty to Buddha to Rodin's The Thinker -- nothing escapes Watanabe's ability to create a crazy, eyecatching mash-up of the absurdly cute and the masterful. Made with a synthetic form of "pastry frosting" that enables these intricate sculptures to have a long and healthy shelf-life, his confectionary accomplishments can be exhibited and enjoyed for years to come. This is Watanabe's first publication, and it leaves no doubt that others will follow. As with chocolate, a single piece is never enough, and this book's sweet content will leave you wanting more.
