Gajin Fujita

Large scale paintings present graffiti overlaid with stylised geisha women, samurai warriors, flowers and animals, motifs from contemporary Japanese cartoons and imagery from American Hip-Hop culture.
Semi-precious metals including white gold and gold leaf are applied to wooden panels. These are then obliterated with graffiti, spray-painted by Gajin and his crew. Finally, a composition of stencilled figures, animals and motifs inspired by traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e imagery is laid over the top.
