i am blessed to have the acquaintance and affinity of many talented and inspirational artists. but one artist that i am very lucky to have an alliance with is Masahiro Ito. he is one of the most unique, gifted and enlightening individuals i have the pleasure of knowing. Brooklyn based via Japan... sculptor, painter, graphic designer, fashion designer, animator, and mix media artist... he truly is a jack of all trades. his work is a reflection of his unique individuality and expression of homage towards his influences. his craft embraces everything from hip hop and graffiti arts, to mother nature and native american culture. honoring his passions through his creative endeavors.
on april 7th masahiro starred in his solo show "Eye of the Wolf" at the dis micro gallery in dumbo brooklyn. a marvelous visual event composed of the different art forms masa uses for his expressions. paintings, installations, fashion, figurines, video. and even recylcing. also featuring the many talented artists that have worked with masahiro. yours truly having the pleasure of being one of them.
meeting masa at Graffolution was the beginning of one of my favorite collaborations. you can check out my blog post on our collabo by clicking here. it's always a delight having the opportunity to work with exalting individuals who burst of contagious inspirations.
Eye of the Wolf runs from april 7th to june 1st.
there is also an upcoming exhibition by masahiro at the same location.
the show is called ascension and will run from may 5th to may 31st.
