Stay Gold: Ken Flewellyn Explores The Intersection Of Diverse Cultures

California-based artist Ken Flewellyn’s work is an interpretation of how cultures interact in modern society. Flewellyn’s realist style redefines the traditional Japanese woman, putting sneakers on her feet and a boombox in her hands. His oil paintings emphasize the versatility of urban identity through contrasting subject matter, yet exude the creative harmony that permeates Far Eastern art.
In his art, Ken Flewellyn steps right into the middle of a culture clash, puts down the swords, and transforms it into a wedding, tilting and zooming into his subjects to give the audience a unique view of cultural identity. His paintings are like snapshots of what would happen if ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘Mi Vida Loca’ met at a Kyoto tea-house for an afternoon of fun and Matcha.
A solo exhibition of Ken Flewelly’s brand new paintings entitled ‘Stay Gold’ will open Saturday, August 5th, 2017 at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, California.
