Edwin Ushiro Show at Sloan Fine Arts


How much do I envy New Yorkers right now? LA-based artist Edwin Ushiro's new solo show is opening in New York's wonderful Sloan Fine Art on March 24th, and it's full of Mr. Ushiro's typical eye-popping gorgeousness.

"The content of Edwin Ushiro’s work is as richly layered as the works themselves. Influenced by the memories and folklore of his childhood in Hawaii and with nods to Japanese Anime, he creates his own mythology populated with modern characters and contemporary references. With 'At Night, Lights Fell and Loved Ones Returned Home,' Ushiro utilizes his technique of layering paint, ink, graphite, varnish and iron transfers on vinyl sheets to create romantic, luminescent works that focus on the mystery, and histories, held by abandoned and forgotten places."
