Canvas Comes Alive in Immersive Installation

| Art , Design

Japanese-Brazilian artist Oscar Oiwa has created a new immersive installation that just opened in NYC. Spending over 100 hours, Oiwa and his team transformed a blank inflated canvas into a world of swirling, black and white cosmos that visitors can step inside of and explore on their own.

Oscar Oiwa has been busy. The immersive “Black & Light” installation comes on the heels of a solo exhibition just last month where he debuted new paintings in New York.

Working only with simple black felt-tip pens, Oiwa visualizes “the crash of two different things. Two opposite ideas or situations. Like light and shadow. Or hot and cold. Or in politics, left and right.” It’s an all-encompassing stream of consciousness that collides inside a massive bubble.

See and explore the 360-degree artwork yourself at The Cadillac House Gallery in New York, now through March 30, 2019.
