Solo Show “OKAINA IMAGE”
a solo show by Daisuke Okamoto
Daisuke Okamoto’s drawing “OKAINA IMAGE” investigates the cycle of life in the complex, biomorphic, narratives of the organic. Influence by all that are sci-fi, Japanese nationalism and psychedelic culture; Okamoto’s drawings are intricate systems of penmanship.
Born in 1979, raised in Tokyo, Japan, and currently living and working in Los Angeles, Okamoto represents the idea of the hybrid in both identity and transformation.
Drawn with a passion for mark making, Okamoto employs repetitive line drawing in ink to work for as long as years on a single drawing.
