L.A. Louver is pleased to present an exhibition of works on paper by the Los Angeles-based artist Gajin Fujita. An opening reception for the exhibition, which runs through April 26th, will take place from 6PM to 8PM on Thursday, March 13th.

Made over the past 7 years, the drawings feature a full range of subject matter–geishas, samurais, demons, fish and flowers–that has become synonymous with the artist. Including nine drawings from 2007-2014, this is the first exhibition dedicated to Fujita’s works on paper and features two drawings produced for Southland Standoff (2013), his most ambitious large-scale painting to date.

In his works, Fujita blends a rich diversity of influences, which range from traditional Japanese ukiyo-e and contemporary manga, to American pop iconography and the culture of the Latino East-Los Angeles neighborhood where he was born and raised. Fujita also combines a variety of techniques and materials in his richly layered paintings that include gold leaf, graffiti, and spray painted images achieved with the assistance of his unique stencil drawings.
