ARTIST TALK & CLAY MODELING WORKSHOP

SUNDAY, JULY 1, 3-5PM

The Salaryman in Japan, is an underpaid and understated workforce who work long hours and have forged a lifestyle that is strongly responsible for the economic miracle of post World War 2 Japan. Today they wander the streets after their long day, drinking and frolicking until they head home to their family, only to face the same thing the following day. Satoshi is this person but has a friend, a beast named Morlin.

We’ll be sure to feature clay sculptures and more from Yukinori Dehara. We’ve featured Japanese artist, Yukinori Dehara annually and his exhibitions range from being touching to grotesque. Yet like most artists, he has a deep ideology behind his pieces although to the casual observer, they look like fun.

 

 

 

 

GOOD NEWS: JANET LIANG UPDATE

By ERIC NAKAMURA

From Janet Liang: “With that said I’d like to announce that I have found a 9/10 donor match from a 29- year old male. I could not have done this without you all. We are also going to look at the cord blood registry for matches and choose our options. Now I’m off to do my spinal tap to make sure it’s not lurking in my noggins.” >>

SMALLTOWN, USA: MAR VISTA BLOCK PARTY

By ERIC NAKAMURA

Next Mayor? Jan Perry and my mother (pictured above). I’ll admit, I’ve never been a great neighborhood guy. I like neighborhoods, but never cared to get out and purposefully meet with neighbors. My doors are shut, windows blocked off – same with my entire family. From mother’s doing, we decided to check out the “Potluck Picnic”. Joined by my aunt and uncle, myself, cousin and his girlfriend, we rolled seven deep to our first Block Party. What would it be like? >>

GAME NIGHT 10 EVENT PHOTOS: GAMES AND A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL

By GIANT ROBOT NEWS

Game Night is always a fun event. The evening had a summer vacation vibe as the area was filled with locals who were just cut free from school. Graduations just took place at the local colleges and everyone was happy to be out. It’s hard to capture the many little micro things going on at Game Night. The crowds came through in waves, so it went from packed, to light, to packed again. We had 4 different games, 5 stations, Yeren – a board game that’s part of Game Over, and even a marriage proposal. >>

ART: FACE OF ANOTHER EXHIBITION AT BALCONI

By ERIC NAKAMURA

I don’t advertise that I do art of any sort and compared the portrait by Aaron Brown, my partner in this exhibition, I’m not in the same league. Why did I pick a guy who can draw like very few can? The two will hang side by side at Balconi Coffee Shop on Olympic and Sawtelle. >>
