chaos lounge


Kazuki Umezawa

Short documentary from toco toco tv about Japanese artist @umelabo whose paintings are rich assemblages of digital and okatu culture.

[EDIT] English subtitles are available for the video if you click the first button in the bottom right corner:

In this episode, we will spend with contemporary artist Kazuki Umezawa, also known as UmeLabo, where he will tell us about his inspirations and his work. First, we will follow him to the Chaos*Lounge Gotanda Atelier, a space shared of the Chaos*Lounge artist group, which Umezawa is part of. The multipurpose space is used by the artists as an atelier, but it is also used as a gallery or as event space.

Umezawa’s style, strongly influenced by otaku culture and its characters, mixes both analog and digital techniques to create digital collages and paintings. We will learn more about his style at CASHI, an art gallery that represents Umezawa, where he will tell us about the state of collage in Japan, and his positioning as an artist.

Our last stop will be at Umezawa’s home atelier, to take another glimpse in his universe and to hear his visions about characters.



I saw people drawing personality swap AUs and thought I should post mine too

EXCEPT 5.0.5. stays the same as a universal constant!! I need him to be a soft boi ™ ;w;

Officer Flug- No one really knows much about him besides Black Hat. Back in the day, if you paid him enough, he’d assassinate anyone. Heroes, villains, civilians. It does not matter to Flug. When he ‘made’ Dementia, Flug moved from assassinations to selling weapons to villains. Since he is nearly unintelligible wearing his gas mask, Black Hat is his interpreter. Sounds like pyro from tf2

Dementia- She was a brilliant scientist known by a different name back when she was alive. Unfortunately, it caught the attention of Flug and he had sent Black Hat to retrieve her. She was able to fend off Black Hat with her inventions, but that only pissed him off. Instead of returning with her in one piece, Black Hat returned her in multiple pieces. She was reconstructed by Flug and is terrified of Black Hat. (She tries to deny then when he is docile that he is kinda cute looking)

Black Hat- Found by Flug a really long time ago. He has immense power and abilities, but spends most of his day causing minor chaos or lounging around. He is Flug’s lap dog and was usually the one who was sent out to kill people. However, he has a very short temper and will kill anyone who looks at him wrong. No one really knows why someone as powerful as Black Hat would listen to Flug and Black Hat’s responses always vary, but the most common response is “He feeds me, that’s enough for me!”

Don’t know where,

Don’t know when.

Oh, I know we’ll meet again

Some sunny day.”
