Gajin Fujita: Drawings
March 13 through April 26, 2014
45 N Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291
In Gajin Fujita’s work, traditional Japanese imagery meshes with graffiti references and pop icons (like the Looney Tunes or manga characters that pop up) — at its best, it’s history-collapsing, cross-cultural, ultra-colorful eye candy. The L.A. native has been showing at L.A. Louver since 2002 and this new show focuses on his drawings, looser than his paintings and made on paper with stencils and spray paint.
