Opening Reception February 27th, 2014 6-8pm

Exhibition Dates February 28 - March 29, 2014 at Kianga Ellis Projects during gallery hours Wednesday - Saturday, 11am - 6pm.

Sebastian Masuda's first exhibition in the United States will be an environmental installation of his art work series “Colorful Rebellion” interpreted as self-portrait of the artist. Seventh Nightmare divides the space of the gallery into seven “zones” representing the seven deadly sins. From March 6 - 9, 2014, Masuda-san’s alter ego and female self will inhabit the gallery during open hours (special open day on Sunday for Armory Arts Week!).

Tokyo Fashion writes:

For nineteen years, Harajuku’s iconic 6%DOKIDOKI boutique has been a key player in the spread of “kawaii” culture in Japan and around the world. The brand’s founder Sebastian Masuda might be described as a “kawaii evangelist”, eager to share his well-considered and well-informed philosophies on Harajuku and kawaii with everyone from the shop’s colorfully-dressed customers to academics at international conferences on Japanese culture. In addition to 6%DOKIDOKI, Masuda has been involved in many other kawaii-related projects – from the “Mighty Harajuku” earthquake recovery efforts to helping launch the career of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (Kyary was a 6%DOKIDOKI fan long before she became a household name).
