About

Joe Suzuki is an inventive visual artist based in Los Angeles, California. He was born in Tokyo in 1976 and immigrated to the United States in 1988. His artworks repurpose cultural icons in an innovative and unique way, thus becoming iconic themselves. There is both a sense of familiarity as well as double-take effect for the viewer as the artworks seem to defy gravity. “I consider my work to be artifacts of my own particular culture, which is not the generalized Japanese American culture, but that which formed as a direct result of being a first generation immigrant. Through a long assimilation process, I found myself not fully belonging to either culture, but rather somewhere in between, which I began to call Japamerica. In my peculiar culture, customs and traditons are born out of misunderstandings or idiosyncrasies, and myths and legends are often formed through the struggles of everyday life. I am fascinated by and curious about my culture's development and the affect it has on my identity. I see my art making as an investigation that captures and documents my ever changing, mutating, polyglot reality. My work is informed by my life, contingent on my ordinary, real world experiences as a middle class Japamerican dad, who is simply trying to make sense of it all.” In this sculptural series by Joe Suzuki, pools of paint appear like familiar shapes as they drip from cans and bottles. The colorful sculptures often pay tribute to artists like Warhol, Basquiat, and Keith Haring by referencing symbols used in their own works. The pieces are constructed with resin casting material and enamel but give the appearance of freshly spilled paint.
