Shingo Yamazaki

As a second-generation American artist of Japanese and Korean descent, Shingo Yamazaki’s work addresses the complexities of cultural hybridity, identity, and the meaning of home. Through his paintings, he navigates having shallow personal connections to a place while being a part of communities with deep ancestral heritages. He draws upon a mixture of cultures, iconographies, and imagery from his upbringing in Hawai’i as well as his recent migration to Los Angeles. His artistic practice oscillates between the real and the imaginary, creating narratives that explore themes such as generational trauma, anxiety, and invisibility.
