FRESH FACES IN ART: EIGHT LA ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
DEVON TSUNO Taking account of current urban sprawls and nature coalescing in Los Angeles’ ever-flowing metroscape, Devon Tsuno documents the city’s myriad facets in hard-edge abstractions defining a new tradition of a master printer/painter using street cred tools, sprays and stencils in lieu of woodblocks applied to traditional handmade washi (rice paper) with acrylics. The city will wrap itself in its graphic representation of Tsuno’s vibrating hues activated in optical patterns of water, a pervasive sense of prismatic reflections on the pathos of color sequences. The image-captures are boundless, viral in their replications, variable in their hope, placeholders for future xeriscaping. (KG). http://devontsuno.com
