'Sinjin', by Japanese sculptor Zero Higashida, is a seemingly quiet yet extraordinarily complex work of art. Aesthetically, the work simultaneously possesses both heavily textured and smooth stainless steel surfaces.
'Sinjin' is part of Higashida’s 'Messaiah’ series-the word “Messaiah” as coined by Higashida is comprised of the words “message” and “messiah.” Spiritual and religious in nature, the works express the artist’s hope for world peace. Higashida states, “There is nothing more important than world peace. I strongly believe that expressing world peace is the only role that art can truly have.”
