ArteQuesta Artist Evan Skrederstu Announces Participation in Upcoming Japanese Yokai Exhibit
ArteQuesta today announced that Evan Skrederstu, a Los Angeles-based urban artist and member of street-art collective UGLARworks (Unified Group of Los Angeles Residents), will be a featured artist in an upcoming exhibition titled "Beware! Yokai!" at the Empire Seven Studios in San Jose, Calif.
Commonly translated as a ghost, phantom, or strange apparition, the term yokai has been used for the supernatural in Japanese culture for hundreds of years. Descriptions of yokai range vastly from the malevolent or mischievous to good fortune. The exhibit will explore yokai history through both traditional and unorthodox perspectives. The show will also expand on a number of themes previously explored by the popular exhibit "Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in the Modern World" at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
The exhibit includes painting, animation, sculpture, and murals completely immersing the visitor in a world of yokai. The exhibition has been curated by Chris Brand and Takahiro Kitamura. The opening reception will be Friday, October 10 with media opportunities for artist and curator interviews.
