Standing in his fancy new Aoyama gallery he’s admiring “Black Wind crosses meadow,” an artwork by Hiroki Tsukuda consisting of “mixed media and stuffed deer.” The ex-stag is wearing a black bomber jacket and plastic face mask, giving it the look of a cervine Darth Vader. Cheeky, playful and slightly disrespectful: it’s very Diesel.
