Fuco Ueda is a Japanese artist who paints with acrylic (which she thins to achieve a watercolor effect) and powdered mineral pigments on paper, cloth, and on wood. Her paintings describe a bizzare world, dominated by female characters, and various nature elements (animals, marine fauna, flowers, bees, mushrooms etc.).
"I have been a huge fan of Fuco's work since first coming across it many years ago on the internet. We added a piece to our collection when she showed alongside Audrey Kawasaki a number of years ago at a small gallery in the outskirts of LA (out in Alhambra of all places). We've been lucky enough to keep in touch with her, and it has been a long process of much back and forth, but we are thrilled to be bringing her work back to Los Angeles coming up in the spring of 2014. She's currently preparing for her solo show in Japan opening soon and I am looking forward to seeing what she creates for her return to the LA market in 2014. Ueda is definitely an artist to watch in my eyes and one that has become increasingly popular in recent years in the very important Asian market."
