GR2: Gathering Whispers - Edwin Ushiro

Giant Robot is proud to present Gathering Whispers — a solo exhibition by Edwin Ushiro. Gathering Whispers July 12 - July 30, 2014 Opening Reception with the Artist: Saturday, July 12, 2014 6:30-10:00 PM Giant Robot 2 2062 Sawtelle Boulevard Los Angeles CA 90025 Edwin Ushiro's work contains a sense of nostalgia even for a person who didn't grow up in Maui. The subjects of his works will range from beautiful, warm, and comfortable. One piece will include a not-so-obvious homage to Super Sentai (like Power Rangers). Kids will be jumping out of a pick-up truck as if they're embarking on a battle against a kaiju. A piece about a bridge built by Okinawan craftspersons encapsulates ideas of change as it has been a subject of demolition to widen a road for more traffic. Another piece features sparklers which scares off bad spirits. While we travail through our daily activities, Ushiro's calming nature comes through in his work and you'll be enchanted by its ethereal look. His pieces have a look that's all its own. It spans from drawings taken to digital manipulation, and then back to hand painting for finishing. It's a laborious process that's all his own. Come celebrate Gathering Whispers at Giant Robot 2.
