California, based Hawaian artist Edwin Ushiro attended the Art Center College of Design and attained a BFA in Illustration. Since then, Ushiro has been working in the amazing world of entertainment as a Production Designer, Visual Consultant, Art Director, Storyboard Artist, and Concept Designer.
Ushiro’s childhood memories come to life in his paintings — haunting images of friends, family pets, and ghostly specters on the Hawaiian islands where he was born and raised. He captures the essence of Hawaii, youth, and nostalgia in a technique that’s uniquely his own.
The LA book launch for a book I’m honored to be part of entitled, “Hunt and Gather: Discovering New Art” by Tina Ziegler is coming up this Saturday, April 10th from 6pm – 8pm presented at Thinkspace Gallery in their new location at 6009 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232.
I’ll be attending and doing the book signing alongside other participating artists such as Nathan Ota, Joshua Petker, Nate Frizzell, Yoksay Yamamoto, Scott Belcastro, Elizabeth Mcgrath, Dave Pressler, Edwin Ushiro, Brandi Miline, and many more.
Here’s a couple pages that I contributed to this amazing collection:
