Zephyr: Paintings by Gajin Fujita

September 8–November 5 , 2006
back to list see upcoming exhibitions see current exhibitions

Zephyr is the first major solo museum exhibition of the provocative and visually stunning work of the acclaimed young Los Angeles artist Gajin Fujita. His paintings are elaborate fusions of contemporary urban street life and traditional Japanese iconography. The past and present, high art and pop culture, and Eastern and Western aesthetics exist in harmony in Fujita’s paintings, demonstrating the artist’s masterful ability to create visual metaphors for today’s global hybridized society. Organized by Kemper Museum curator Elizabeth Dunbar, the exhibition surveys nearly a decade of Fujita’s dazzling works. A full color, scholarly catalogue was also produced in conjunction with the exhibition. Gajin Fujita was a visiting artist at the Kemper Museum.
