Kota Ezawa recreates animated sequences from television, cinema, and art history. He uses basic digital drawing and animation software to create slide projections, light boxes, collages, and prints. In the vein of Warhol, his highly stylized facsimiles of familiar and often infamous images emphasize the distance between the viewer and the depicted figures that feature so prominently in America’s collective memory. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the San Francisco Museum of Art, California among others. The artist is represented by the Cheryl Haines Gallery, San Francisco, California and Christopher Grimes Gallery in Los Angeles.
