Artist of the moment……Gajin Fujita

Gajin Fujita takes two of my favorite forms  of art, street art and japanese woodblock prints to make some spectacular designs. Gajin Fujita was born in East Los Angeles, California in  the year 1972. His works use many mediums and are quite vast in size.

In this clip we visit a gallery show that took place in 2011:

The artist uses many mediums to complete one piece of artwork. Pencil, spray paint, gold and silver leaf, and felt tip markers. This gives the surface a wonderful paint quality. My favorite artist who works with many mediums at a time is the great Robert Kushner. I have written about Kushner many times, the artist makes floral designs and uses many mediums to complete a work including a final coat of resin that helps the glitter he uses on most works even more play of light.

Fujita is based out of Los Angeles and works with some graffiti crews in the area.

In this clip a montage of works by Gajin Fujita:

For his artistic education Fujita attended the Otis College of Art and Design in California earning a BFA. For his MFA the artist attended the University of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fujita has shown his work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
