Art and much much more!

Edwin Ushiro at Project Gallery LA

project:gallery is proud to announce, ‘While Tides Guide you back Home’, a solo exhibition from artist Edwin Ushiro. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, and will include his first integrated installation.

The concept for while tides guide you back home is inspired by Edwin Ushiro’s feelings of regret and remorse for leaving his native Hawaii. Often wondering how life would have been different had he remained on Maui, Ushiro creates a body of work evoking childhood memories real and imagined. He portrays these moments through dreamlike sequences where he re-writes and re-interprets his own childhood memories.

The works in this solo exhibition are a cohesive series of multimedia paintings that confront both memories of childhood and stories of Hawaiian folklore. Ushiro utilizes some truly unique artistic techniques, a fusion of traditional and digital. Ushiro incorporates paint, ink, iron transfers, fabric and other materials into his work in order to achieve the desired moods and emotions.

The unique emotion and techniques that make up Ushiro’s work have turned him into one of the most buzz-worthy emerging artists working today. With several recent magazine interviews and shows booked into 2009 from New York to Los Angeles and appearances coming at Art Basel, Ushiro has become one of the most talked about artists in the new contemporary movement.

The show opens Saturday, July 12th 2008. Check project:gallery for more details.
