The ethereal style that so defines Edwin Ushiro’s paintings as a singular creative force will be on full display within the work of his enthralling new solo show, “Gathering Whispers” which opens this Saturday, July 12th at Giant Robot 2 in Los Angeles, California. Ushiro creates his work through a lengthy, devoting process that involves illustration, digital manipulation, layering of drawings and painting that results in glowing, artistic revelry. See more work from the show below!
’Mukashi Mukashi’ & ‘A New Tenant’
I was asked to contribute to the Heroes in A Half Shell: A TMNT Tribute Exhibition for Gallery Nucleus, which will be opening this Saturday.
I thought it would be fun to show Splinter and crew with Shredder’s vanquished helmet, only kicking it back to the feudal age of Japan it’s based off of. No mutations and a samurai helmet.
I grew up with the 90’s TMNT and finding out that the new Krang was no longer the campy robot kangaroo pouch with alien brain baby left me nostalgic. It felt like Krang had left his out dated model back in ‘87 for a shiny new ride, and I couldn’t help thinking it’s probably still sitting around somewhere collecting dust, overgrown with plants.
