Thank You!

Reid (Lifetime) and I would like to thank the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of you that came out to the art show on Friday! It was overwhelming! Big thanks to Savoury Chef for providing all of the delicious food, the mini Vietnamese subs were a huge hit! If you’re hosting an event in Vancouver you need to let them handle the catering! Thanks to Phono for the music and Kale Friesen for shooting photos!

KENICHI HOSHINE INTERVIEW

kenichi hoshine tangents art show interview booooooom

Where are you living these days?

I’m living and working in Brooklyn, NY.

How much of Brooklyn is there in your work?

I moved here in March of this year so I can’t say that there is much of Brooklyn in my work. I don’t think my environment affects my work too much.

You have an interesting way of veiling an image, covering elements with a wash. Can you tell me a bit about your process and the way your style has evolved into what it is now?

Most of my work you have been seeing lately have layers of beeswax over them. I have always found images that are obscured or fragmented to be more interesting than “complete” pictures. I am drawn towards implied images that suggest certain moods and narratives. More often than not, I will draw or paint a “complete” image then delete/erase/sand parts of it until I achieve the desired picture. I probably spend more time editing the image than actually putting it down on the panel or paper.
