Oscar Satio Oiwa
Oscar Satio Oiwa is active/lives in Asia, Hong Kong. Oscar Oiwa is known for painting.
Oscar Satio Oiwa was born and raised in Brazil to Japanese parents and later
lived in Tokyo, briefly in London, and now is based in New York, and his
peripatetic life is perfectly distilled in the globalized fantasia of
his paintings. Executed in rich, intricate detail, the works are
evocative of night markets full of exotic food vendors, glowing as if
with their own internal light.
Oiwa often adds additional surrealistic
details or jarringly out-of-scale elements, giving his works both an
humanistic warmth but a cautiously ambivalent tone over globalization
and its disparate effects.
