Fishcake presents HI > NY > HI reflection / rearticulation by a ring of eight Hawaii born artists that share a journeyed experience to New York City around the neo-conceptual era of the 80’s, on view January 21 to April 10, 2021.

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.


Noe Tanigawa, known throughout Hawaii for her sexy poetic voice over the radio waves, makes equally exotic paintings. If you haven’t seen a Tanigawa flower or more abstracted subject matter you haven’t experienced the visual pleasure that her voice only begins to sketch. Warm colors, ethereal motion, jazz-like brush strokes all evoke Tanigawa’s burning passion for life. “Noe Tanigawa here.”
