In the 80’s - 90’s a circle of young emerging artists ventured from their homes in Hawaii to the Big Apple, aka New York City. The scene at the time was the height of neo-conceptualism, avant garde and pop street art. Big names that came from those times were Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, etc. This circle of Hawaii artists experienced a unique and special time together in American history. Now, forty years later, many have trickled back to Hawaii, bringing with them their own flavor. This show will be the third iteration of HI/NY/HI shows since their exhibitions in the early 90’s at BOOM Gallery downtown and in the mid-90’s at KCC’s Gallery, but with new participants Larry Maruya, Charles Yuen and Gordon Sasaki.
