AM recently had the chance to peek inside Meguru Yamaguchi's studio in Brooklyn as he was preparing a new body of work, which will be shown at Reed Space starting March 26th. Infinity Net will present some striking new abstract work by the Tokyo-born and raised artist for his second showing at the space. The works continue his colorful expressive style, but step further into abstract while continuing to combine the influences of the street culture in Shibuya and NYC, along with fashion design influences both from his parents and his previous collaborations with street culture brands. Working with acrylic and epoxy resin on canvas, the Brooklyn-based artist created a series of out of frame paintings that effectively accent the dynamics and energy of his imagery. These almost sculptural works are literally breaking the boundaries of classical painting, adding the feel of infinite power to the works. Along with this, he also worked on few portraits, mostly based on his friends' profile photos on social media. This concept is actually Yamaguchi's nod to impressionist artists that painted their landscapes and friends, where he does the same, just with contemporary virtual landscape and friends. The show will stay on view until April 30th.
