The Visual Arts Gallery proudly presents the first U.S. solo exhibition of the Tokyo-born Italian-Japanese artist Ōyama Enrico Isamu Letter, titled, Quick Turn Structure. “Quick Turn Structure” is the term coined by Ōyama himself for his signature black and white angular motif, which developed from visual language in graffiti culture. In this exhibition, Ōyama presents a site-specific mural painting, wall-encompassing canvas paintings, as well as series of small works on paper in which he experiments with the found figurative images. Ōyama’s recent engagements include: a commission for the Japanese fashion brand, COMME des GARÇONS for its Paris Collection 2012 S/S; participation in the Artist in Residence program at the Clocktower Galleryin New York City; and the group show “Generating Visuals – Inspiring Circuits” at Takuro Someya Contemporary Art in Tokyo.
