We get a unique perspective on the Chicago Art Scene by watching the parade of artwork coming and going through our doors. In our showroom we will be hi-lighting some of the coolest and most affordable Chicago art being collected and framed by our community.
After spending his childhood in Japan and Hawaii, Hiroshi Ariyama has spent most of his adult life in Chicago working as a multi-faceted graphic designer. In 2003, after nearly 20 years in the commercial world, he turned his energies toward fine art.
His current series of multi-color screenprints are made using intricate stencils created from his own photography. This series is comprised of simple urban scenes enhanced through a very graphic manipulation of light, color & texture.
His intent is to capture an emotional point in time within each scene whether it be nostalgic reflection, simple observation, or a happy glance into a moments fleeting possibilities.
