Yumiko Kayukawa - Year of the Fire Horse

Yumiko Kayukawa - Year of the Fire Horse

June 11 - July 13, 2014

FOLEY is pleased to present an exhibition of artist Yumiko Kayukawa.

Yumiko Kayukawa grew up in the small town of Naie in Hokkaido, Japan. In her pristine and natural surroundings, Kayukawa found her love of animals and nature which later became an important theme of her work. Throughout the years, Kayukawa drew inspirations from American pop culture such as Rock & Roll, film and fashion. Kayukawa's unique style arose from the fusion of these influential sectors of American pop culture with modern and traditional Japanese motifs.

At the age of 16, Kayukawa debuted her unique style as an artist with a Manga feature.  Kayukawa graduated from Bisen Art School in Sapporo, Japan and currently works and resides in Seattle, Washington.

FOLEY is open Wednesday - Sunday, 12-6pm, and by appointment.  For more information or to request images, please contact the gallery at 212.244.9081 or via e-mail at info@foleygallery.com.
