Oscar Oiwa in Paradise – Drawing the Ephemeral

Exhibition / Brazil
April 3, 2018 - June 3, 2018
JAPAN HOUSE São Paulo
Avenida Paulists, 52, São Paulo  

For his latest piece, titled Oscar Oiwa in Paradise – Drawing the Ephemeral, the artist used 120 black marker pens to adorn an entire inflatable dome with illustrations of imaginative pathways, mythical forests, and swirling skies. Created exclusively for JAPAN HOUSE São Paulo, the installation took two weeks to complete with the help of five assistants. Visitors are invited to enter the vinyl balloon, where they can experience Oiwa’s otherworldly, imaginary landscape. The colossal, monochrome drawing covers every surface of the 10 x 7 x 4 meter vinyl surface, and is influenced by the artist’s love of comic book art, and the Brazilian urban environment.

Grantee: Oiwa Oscar Satio
