tell me a story: a new installation:)

my favorite gallery, lebasse projects is showcasing a solo exhibition by yoshitaka amano next saturday, and they invited me to have an installation in their project room.
i am very excited to be exhibiting in a same space with a such a legendary artist like mr amano.
if you are not familiar with his work he was the one who is responsible for the character design of such animation as gatchman, speed racer, vampire hunter d and also the video game, final fantasy series.

this installation will be a continuation on the installation from my last solo exhibition, "hello and goodbye." this will be very site specific and also will be the largest installation from myself.

here are some progress pictures:

primed and ready to be painted:)

thanks to my good friend mari for helping me set up my new air brush:)

this is a separate project but it will be displayed at the show.

for more info about the show please visit lebasse projects web site.

my favorite canadian artists:)

my friend tessar lo and nimit malavia are having a solo show at show & tell gallery in toronto canada this friday.

i had a chance to share a studio space with tessar for about a year and it's been a pleasure to see his work evolve significantly in such a short period of time. i really love how he is focusing on the mood of the paintings rather than the details.

i also had chance to share the same studio with nimit during summer 08 and i am amazed of his growth in skill and details.
they are both truly talented artists, please stop by to see the show if you are near tronto.

here are some images of their works:

tessar lo, "friendship"

tessar lo, "a perfect magic"

nimit malavia, "till i can't anymore"
