YUTA NAWA

Love in Multiple Forms
July 1 – July 21, 2022
Reception: Thursday, July 7, 2022 6-8 PM

The work of Yuta Nawa is often triggered by current events. Nawa focuses on social events, and when a story captures his attention, he is inspired to create. Nawa was born and raised in Japan, and Japanese life and culture is embedded within his work. Nawa learned the calligraphy style Shodo, for example, which he utilizes in his often-monochromatic compositions. Nawa frequently employs acrylic, ink, and Hu powder on traditional Japanese paper to synthesize his Japanese roots with his artistic talent.

In his spare time, Nawa takes in concerts, theater, and the classical Japanese dramatic art of kabuki. He grew up in a family of designers: his father was a graphic designer and his mother a fashion designer. His artistic process has grown organically since he was young, and has simplified over time. Nawa prefers uncomplicated forms, leaning into the possibility of line and straightforward color. He blazes his own path forward, untethered by any single artistic movement or inspiration. Nawa is a member of the Souju Shodo and Dokuritsu Shojindan artist organizations, and he had his work displayed at the Tokyo National Art Center from 2017-2021. Nawa’s art provokes the realization that everything has a different angle, that meanings can be multiple and interpretations ambiguous.
