Exhibit Recap: Giant Robot Biennale 4

One of my more frequent weekend activities is checking out art galleries and museum exhibits around Los Angeles. I’ve been wanting to share pieces I like and touch on what I’m inspired by. So here we are.

To start off, here are my favorite pieces from Giant Robot Biennale 4 at the Japanese American National Museum. Giant Robot always curates the best in the Asian contemporary art scene. I especially loved Yoskay Yamamoto’s Wish You Were Here installation (JANM did a blog post on it!). And it was awe-inspiring to watch Katsuya Terada draw live, freehand.

Mike Lee, love the rendering and aesthetic. Deceptively complex.

Katsuya Terada drawing LIVE on many of the weekends. No pencil lines, just straight on to paper. Amazing.

Detail peering. Like how she uses the hits of highlight. And her texturing is so subtle and effective.
