Milt Kobayashi, Contemporary Artist

"... he paints remarkably French post-impressionist-looking scenes with an updated palette and sensibility. Images of women and men, alone and in groups appear moody and evocative of late nights and inner demons. Rumpled clothes, ruddy complexions and messy hair render Kobayashi's subjects intriguingly bohemian. His intimate portrayals are personal translations of what he has witnessed on city streets, in movies and at museums. There are plenty of (Japonisme) bright patterns to provide visual allure amongst these subtly dark depictions." (eisenhauergallery.com)


British art correspondent, Godfrey Barker wrote of Kobayashi, "Milt Kobayashi's compositions are wicked in their education, wicked in their skilful calculation and wickedly clever in their balance, their tonal contrasts and their negative space. In short, we're looking at an unusually professional and well-sourced artist, cultivated in a manner uncommon in the desert of Disney that is modern America. He's apart from his age and we need to see more of him!" (London Evening Standard) (eisenhauergallery.com)
