Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:

Original artworks, prints, exhibition posters, monographs, books, collectibles.

This artist makes wildly disparate psychological, experiential and syntactical spaces that both collide and reside happily under an umbrella of technical mastery at once beautiful and banal…
Using acrylic over the gold leaf and spray paint, Fujita adds figurative elements that are at once pretty and fierce. Samurai, demons, kung-fu fighters, lotus flowers, fancy fish and geishas rest cheek by jowl with the more meticulously designed graffitiesque verbiage…
His paintings are elaborate fusions of contemporary urban street life and traditional Japanese iconography…
