This past Thursday marked the opening of the ‘I See You’ an inaugural art exhibit by my friend Eri Wakiyama. The opening night was a blast and it was great to see so many people come out in support of her art work. When I first met Eri I had no idea she drew but when I found her tumblr Mermaid Hair I quickly became a fan of her work. If you like the images here definitely check her stuff out on there as she regular posts similarly-styled illustrations and paintings.
The exhibition on Kenmare closed Sunday but I managed to get some snaps of the work while it was still hanging. Some of the pieces have already sold but if you are interested in getting in touch with Eri regarding her artwork the best way to reach her is through e-mail or on twitter. The color palettes and whimsical, quirky mood of her work is best seen in person and I already can’t wait until her next showing.

Photographer/Blogger Vincent Tsang of On and Beyond and illustrator Jeremy Wirth collaborated on this projected entitled NeoNinja. NeoNinja is a visual portrayal that bridges the gap between photography and illustration and really adds a degree of needed fantasy to menswear. The pieces shown above can be found at Off the Hook in Montreal.
