Japanese-born, Brooklyn-based artist, Kenji Hirata’s artwork in form and color is strongly inspired by nature, billboards, and hand painted signage of Southeast Asia, and futurism. His use of shapes and colors create a language that has been presented across a number of different mediums of all sizes. His pieces project a language that is always in motion and with this special language Hirata is created, we are all given a glimpse into his universe.
Hirata is also a core member of artist New York & Japan collective, Barnstormers alongside Doze Green, David Ellis, and Chulo. His work (along with collective members David Ellis and Maya Hayuk) had caught the eye of Absolut Vodka, which then asked Hirata to help with the launch of their Raspberry Campaign. Check out the video here.
Hirata has been featured by Cool Hunting, Juxtapoz, and has seen pieces on exhibit at everywhere from Southeastern Center for contemporary Art (North Carolina) and Zeit Art Gallery (Hamburg, Germany) to Reed Space (Brooklyn, NY) to New York’s Levi’s store. Hirata just finished a solo exhibit at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York.
To fully appreciate Hirata’s magnificent world, you need to see it in person. For more information on Kenji Hirata and for upcoming exhibits, visit kenjihirata.com.
