Preview: CHAD HASEGAWA Opening Party 03/04/17 at The Marcy Project, NYC curated by DK Johnston for The Marcy Project March 03, 2017 22:51

Chad Hasegawa as profiled by Lori Zimmer 

Known for his gestural imagery of grizzly bears and artistic heroes, painter Chad Hasegawa elevates the medium of ordinary house paint into the fine art realm with his beautiful paintings. Taking influence from graffiti and mural art, the San Francisco-based artist creates his portraits and figures with a heavy hand akin to the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1940s. Completely self-taught, Hasegawa has developed a multi-layered style of mixing tones and shades that is enigmatic on canvas as it is on the street.

They’re an observation of shape, texture and especially color that is an extension of my heart, measured by brain and fueled by my visceral fire.” — Amy Hood
