On November 13th (Thurs) from 5pm to 8pm, a reception party will be held in Downtown Art District.

Yozo Abe, a contemporary artist from Japan, will hold his Flying Colors exhibition in Downtown Art District.

Yozo Abe, a contemporary artist from Japan, will hold his Flying Colors exhibition for the two days of November 13 and 14, 2014 at TYRANT KING located in the Downtown Art District. He has built his career in Japan as well as around the world, with successful solo exhibitions in Tokyo, Vancouver, Spain and New York. As his third annual solo exhibition in Los Angeles, this collection features paintings from the immensely successful exhibition held in July of this year at PIPS in New York.

Yozo Abe has an innovative style, expressing the ideas that arise when he faces a canvas. The inspiration for his works springs from within, and is intuitive. As he puts it, “painting is a conversation with myself.” Playful and innocent creatures are only one part of the unique and sometimes mysterious world of his paintings. These captivating works are of a somewhat unusual character that can fascinate or even bewilder the viewer.

His solo exhibition held at the James Gray Gallery in Santa Monica, California in the summer of 2011 earned him critical acclaim within the Los Angeles art community. Building on this momentum, he participated in the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk from August 2011 through January of the following year. The immersive experience was an invaluable learning experience to him, exposing him to a new culture and connecting with the local community. The solo exhibition he held in May of this year was also a great hit, earning him new fans. This new show will feature past favorites along with new works from the PIPS New York exhibition.

Please note that there will be an opening reception party on November 13 from 5 pm. Entrance is free of charge with no reservation needed. Everyone is encouraged to join the celebration and experience the eccentric works of Yozo Abe.

“My pictures represent the mastery of freedom and are a challenge to society.” –Yozo Abe
