Progress on another piece for @coreyhelfordgalleryπŸ’ͺ Been working on this one at the same time as the piece in my previous post! πŸ‘€ Both present a fun and new challenge for me because they are painted from a live model, though my imagination makes her look a lil different! πŸ˜‡

I'm getting a head start on my next solo show @coreyhelfordgallery and working on a couple pieces at once! πŸ’ͺ Some of you might remember this one from my live feed a few days ago. Here's today's progress! 🎨✨

#TBT Laying down the background of my piece for the @dorothycircus 10th anniversary show coming up in November! This is my first time showing with them and I am so excited! πŸ‘πŸ‘ My piece is finished now and if you've been following my story feed, you've seen me working on it. πŸ˜‡
The theme for this show is traveling or going on a journey. I have a philosophy that we should live life to the fullest and it will make our journey into the next life a happy one and more meaningful. ❀️
I'll post more pics as we get a lil closer to the show - more info coming soon! To contact the gallery about my work, please email info@dorothycircusgallery.com.

Many of you have been asking when you can see my work in #NY? πŸ’πŸ» I'm excited to be showing with @overtheinfluencehk in their debut pop-up exhibition in Soho this week! My painting "Epic Annihilation" β˜„οΈ is on view, alongside artists @invaderwashere @cleonpeterson @vhils & more.
The pop-up is located at 393 Broadway in Soho, and runs from June 16th-23rd. There will be an opening event tonightπŸŒ› from 5-10pm, and the pop-up daytime hours are from 11am-6pm.

Link to the event details in my bio. πŸ‘Œ To inquire about my piece in the show, please contact the gallery at inquiries@overtheinfluence.com.

I love seeing my paintings in their new homes!! Thank you @winstonlee.art for sharing this pic of my painting "I Do Not Know My Enemy (Girl)" πŸ‘ΌπŸ’ͺ in your amazing collection! πŸ™ She looks so pretty in her float frame! πŸ˜»πŸ‘
These portraits are of a child that is posed to defeat the "enemy" of this world (the fighting poses mimic those of Japanese action heroes) and addresses my own questions like, "Who is our true enemy? Why do we choose to fight, and who to kill?" The pose in this piece is inspired by #SailorMoon, specifically a pose she makes when she says, "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!" I painted her for my recent solo show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery.
If you want to know more about this piece and see a full image, please visit me online at HikariShimoda.com. 😘 To inquire about my work for this show, please email the gallery at sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com.
