September 20 - October 11, 2016
Reception: Thursday September 22, 2016 6-8 PM

David Stanley Hewett is one of the most well-known foreign artists in Japan where he has lived and worked for 23 years. His works can be seen in the permanent collections of the Imperial Hotel, The Okura Hotel, The Peninsula Hotel, Mitsui Trading, and numerous other public and private collections around the world. David Stanley Hewett first arrived in Japan in 1988 and began studying Japanese ceramics, traditional painting, Obi design, and, most notably, the technique for making traditional Japanese folding screens. This art is rarely practiced anymore, as most screens are now made with modern tools and materials.  

As a former US Marine and a long-time practitioner of Japanese Karate, Hewett has always been fascinated with Japanese martial history and culture. The Samurai code of Bushido and the Japanese Shinto Religion have played significant roles in influencing Hewett’s work over the past decade. Hewett began painting his now famous Bushido Series in 2004 using Kanazawa gold leaf and acrylics on canvas. The Bushido series combines traditional and modern materials to express Hewett’s interpretation of the Samurai code of Bushido through abstract painting.

Since 1992 Hewett has held major exhibitions in Japan, Singapore, and the United States.
