This Saturday, New York based artist Tomokazu Matsuyama will debut his first solo exhibit in Los Angeles with Mark Moore Gallery entitled 'New Work'. In this lastest collection of work, the artist will present seven new vivid compositions and one small-scale sculpture showcasing Matsuyama’s graphic sensibility combined with Japanese iconography.
Drawing upon his own bicultural experience of living in both Japan and the United States, Matsuyama explores issues of shifting identity. Appropriated imagery from Japanese folklore and art history seamlessly intertwine with western painterly influences such as Abstract Expressionism and, more contemporaneously, street art.
Enjoy a peek at some of our favorites from the preview.
Saturday, September 8th 6-9pm Mark Moore Gallery 5790 Washington Blvd Culver City, CA 90232 markmooregallery.com
