On June 8, Yumiko Kayukawa returns for her eighth solo show at the Shooting GalleryMadness (full press release here.) Her work bridges contemporary American pop culture with traditional Japanese motifs, where each painting is rife with references and humorous anecdotes. She sent us some detail shots of her upcoming work giving us a look at her precisely formed lines and expressive linework. Kayukawa’s oeuvre expresses a love of nature, with vibrant animal characters, and a recurring, self-possessed female protagonist.

I just finished up the last piece for my show "Madness". It starts next month at the Shooting Gallery.

来月始まるShooting Galleryでの個展「狂気 - Madness」に出展する最後の絵を描き終えました。

I'm burned out now. So I went to I Love Sushi Lake Union for a little reward. On the way I found two rising dragons in the sky!

燃え尽きて、現在白いHigh。ご褒美に、I Love Sushi Lake Union にご飯を食べに行ったら、2頭の昇り龍が上空に!

One of the dragon said "You worked really hard. You can eat Lobster Maki tonight". So I ordered this.  DELICIOUS!


Desert was a Coconut ice cream sundae at Daniel's Broiler <3
