Giant Robot Time: 5.16.14 – Yoskay Yamamoto solo exhibition opens Sat. 5.17 at GR2!

Yoskay Yamamoto – House of Daydreamers

May 17 – June 4, 2014

Reception: Saturday, May 17, 6:30-10 PM

Giant Robot is proud to present an exhibition by Yoskay Yamamoto – House of Daydreamers.

Yoskay Yamamoto is a treasure in Los Angeles. As thoughtful and charming as his presence at various exhibitions, he’s also a developed creator. His painted imagery is unmistakable and his 3d work which is often hard carved is whimsical and precious. Yamamoto will be creating numerous flower sculptures along with paintings, and as usual, will create an enchanting installation.

Yoskay Yamamoto was born in Japan, attended school in Santa Barbara, and is a self taught artist living in Los Angeles. Join him and many of his friends at his exhibition reception. Music will be provided by Kalin Charles.

Meet the Bear and Little Nun (Save Music in Chinatown)


The Bear and Little Nun was a last-minute addition to the Save Music in Chinatown 3 lineup. But the experimental/soulful duo is a perfect fit for the benefit not only because Mark Baar and Noni Rigmaiden are Castelar parents but also because of roots in O.G. Chinatown punk rock and modern Shanghai club culture (with Atlanta and Bay Area jazz and R&B connections, to boot).


Meet Bitter Party (Save Music in Chinatown 3)


This quartet is also uniquely appropriate for the benefit concert, taking inspiration and energy from Taiwanese and Vietnamese immigrant culture as well as the contemporary art scene. Here’s what the members have to say…


Giant Robot Talks at SFSU, OMCA, JAMsj


I don’t get to San Jose often, but it was nice to be able to visit a place that seems so close to home.


Taught a College Course – Achievement Unlocked


The class is actually about zines. The history, the reasons why, how to make zines, skill development, and putting together a zine fest. It was an unusual class that used academic readings and placed students in non-academic situations outside of classes and campus – the “valuable shit.”
