My new personal space is a classic pre-war walk up in Brooklyn NY. It is a large space, somewhat massive for one person.
It is slowly filling with new memories that have the job of replacing old ones. The light in the space is particularly noteworthy.
A warm north light, it changes drastically in terms of color, but subtly with intensity. There is a view of the city’s skyline, with a direct shot
at the Empire State Building. When I sit and rest, I always face eastward.

brooklyn based japanese artist/illustrator hiroki otsuka honed his craft drafting and inking comic book cells for a variety of projects, and illustrated for a number of major japanese publications through 2004. in 2005, otsuka’s focus shifted from graphic to fine arts, working predominantly with traditional sumi ink used in japanese calligraphy. otsuka’s debut solo show at brooklyn’s stay gold gallery in 2005 prompted the new yorker to write that his works “…push the populist youth quotient through the roof.” since then, hiroki otsuka has gained international recognition with works being shown at berlin’s kunstraum richard sorge. from march 12-june 13, 2010, otsuka served as japan society’s first-ever manga artist-in-residence during the exhibition graphic heroes, magic monsters: japanese prints by utagawa kuniyoshi from the arthur r. miller collection.
hiroki’s show will combine two art forms, manga and mandala. manga, a popular japanese art form brings out in bright color our subconscious, secret desires. mandala is a another ancient form with roots in hindu that evoke esoteric and spiritual meditation. the combination of the two can not be in better hands than that of artist hiroki otsuka.
