Artist Naomi Okubo keeps dazzling me with her paintings that pop off the canvas with so many stunning colors. Love the patterns and her incredible attention for detail. See the paintings on the wall in the first image below? They are actually small versions of her own works she created previously!
Originally from Tokyo, Naomi is currently based in Brooklyn where she is participating in various exhibitions. If you’re lucky enough to be around New York this summer: Naomi will take part in a show called On Illusions, which opens on August 4, 4-6 pm (in collaboration with Cuchifritos Gallery and Residency Unlimited).
I had the pleasure of meeting Naomi in her Tokyo based studio back in 2015, where she showed me some of her paintings and talked about her working process. You can read more about it here!
