About

New York based artist Toshee creates artworks that combine fine art practice, graphic design, and topography. Toshee studied design at Harvard under the late, great Toshihiro Katayama, internationally acclaimed graphic designer, sculptor and painter. His artist name pays homage to his teacher, who passed away in January 2013. This unique 36 inch square artwork is created through a combination of meticulous layering and expressionistic painting. Each layer is covered with yet another a layer of resin. The reflective sheen and polished look of the resin enhance the unique contrast to the layers underneath, adding a fascinating window into the work. The many different layers in each collage allow the viewer to visually excavate the piece. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Free professional installation in the local Los Angeles area, including placement and hardware. For installation on staircases or hard to reach walls, an additional charge applies. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included. Toshee states about his work: "I’ve long been fascinated by maps, topographical representations, and diagrams representing what lies under the surface of the earth. I’m particularly interested in exploring the topography that arises from layering strata of collage elements. The resulting surfaces are further transformed by the application of resin. The resin allows the viewer to visually excavate the piece, revealing the sedimentation made up of pigments and solids. Taken as a whole, the sedimentary elements are compressed by the layering process, storing that force as energy that the viewer can hopefully unleash by engaging the piece up close." Toshee has worked as a university teaching fellow, video game producer, multimedia consultant, sitcom writer, music company manager, and documentary series writer. His creative practice is at the crux of his professional careers, permeating the practical with a contemporary creative edge.
