Spring / Fall

September 30, 2013 - October 11, 2013
Mānoa Campus, Art Building, Commons Gallery

Kalani Largusa, from Kapahi, Kaua‘i, was recently accepted into the graduate program at the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He was educated in drawing and painting at the California College of Arts in Oakland and San Francisco and received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago last spring. His work centers on an exploration of painting processes, contemporary Pacific Islander and Asian identity, and Polynesian tattoo symbolism and methodology. Through layers and almost western comic book iconography, his work reveals a record of cultural themes and experiences. It ranges from sharp, stylized draftsmanship and mixed-media art journals to large abstract, often non-representational oil paintings.

Reception: Friday, October 4, 12:00–4:00 p.m.
