Open This Week: "Back and Forth" – Hideaki Kawashima at Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles
Hideaki Kawashima, a former Buddhist monk turned ethereal portrait painter, is quickly proving to be one of the most reputable stars of Japan's contemporary art scene. Trained by the iconic Yoshitomo Nara and inspired by the low-brow wonderland of Mark Ryden, his portraits of various women are often simple yet all are as haunting as they are beautifully executed. His latest exhibit "Back and Forth" will be on display at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica beginning October 18th.

Wow, I love how these are all so clearly the same style but each face looks different.

@caricakes Me too! I think they all share a relatively similar eye shape, but they definitely waiver from portrait to portrait.
