galleryONE: The Illustrious Barron Storey, solo exhibition

VIEW AVAILABLE WORKS ONLINE


Barron Storey returns to Anno Domini for his 8th solo exhibition: “The Illustrious Barron Storey.”  This survey includes selected commercial illustrations created over a 40 year span as well as personal drawings and paintings from Barron’s renowned journals.

Barron Storey (born 1940, Dallas, TX) is an American illustrator, graphic novelist, and educator. He is famous for his accomplishments as an illustrator and fine artist, as well as for his 30+ year career as a teacher.

He trained at Art Center in Los Angeles and under Robert Weaver at the School of Visual Arts in New York. A commercial illustrator since the 1960s, Storey’s clients have included major magazines such as “Boys’ Life”, “Reader’s Digest”, and “National Geographic.” His cover portraits for “Time” of Howard Hughes and Yitzhak Rabin hang in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. His giant painting of the South American rain forest hangs in New York’s American Museum of Natural History, and a 1979 rendering of the space shuttle commissioned by NASA, the first official painting ever done of it, hangs in the Air and Space Museum on the National Mall.

As a book illustrator he has done cover illustrations for the Franklin Library classics, “War and Peace”, “The Good Earth “and “Stories by Sinclair Lewis”;  as well as the covers of “Fahrenheit 451 “by Ray Bradbury for Del Rey / Ballantine; and, most famously, the 1980 reissue of “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding.

Storey has also published many comics and graphic novels, including “The Marat/Sade Journals” (Tundra), which was nominated for an Eisner Award, Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman: Endless Nights” (DC/Vertigo) which won an Eisner, “Tales from the Edge #1-10,” Barron Storey’s “WATCH Magazine” (Vanguard), and “Life After Black” (Graphic Novel Art). Not only has he been the teacher of comic giants as Kent Williams and George Pratt, but he was also a key inspiration for artist/illustrators Dave McKean, Bill Sienkiewicz, David Mack and David Choe.

galleryTWO: I Am Back!
Yoshi47 (Japan), solo exhibition


“I AM BACK!” Yoshi47 (Japan) solo exhibition
San Jose is the place where I started becoming an artist, showed my works and did live-painting for the first time in this city. This series of my works are all combined old and the latest works together, so that people can at least see my path and process of being where I am now.

Each era has its own story, and the recent concept is about “Texture”, “Nature”, and “Imperfection”. These are the words that I always care about to pursue the way I express the beauty. Texture has its own cultural background and it is sometimes shows us deep inside with a unique balance with colors and design. Nature tells us how severe and sweet the world is. Imperfection shows how lovely the human beings are. These 3 words are the spine of my art inspiration.

About the Artist:
Yoshi47 (b. 1981, Gifu Prefecture, Japan)

At the age of twenty, Yoshi47 moved to California, U.S.A. to pursue an art career. He spent four years in the Bay area doing live painting and participating in both solo exhibitions and art events. While living in San Francisco, he discovered a small group of avid bicyclists and became a bike messenger. It was through his experience as a courier that he found his essence of life and the conceptual basis for his art.

In 2006, he returned to Japan. Initially he lived in Tokyo, where he continued to work as a messenger and became involved in the bicycle industry. He eventually relocated to Kariya City for two and a half years to focus on his artistic and business endeavors. In 2010, he spent eight months in Tochigi and afterward returned to Tokyo.

He is involved in art curation, graphic design, and collaborative projects with companies such as NIKE, SWATCH, VANS and more. He continues to exhibit his artwork worldwide such as Australia, China, America, Canada, France, Mexico, Sweden, and Taiwan. He currently resides in a country side, Atsumi Peninsula in Japan, where he can bike, surf, fish, camp and snowboard.
