“Feed your Senses" is an exhibition presenting the art works of three international artists: Hiroshi Jashiki, Anya Roz and Sergey Voronin Curated by Mariano Cinat, This exhibition explores how their cultural influences from different countries reflects on their perceptions of Harlem. Harlem has attitude and visceral qualities. The visual voice of the participating artists are incited by the city’s energy and translated into color, texture, movement and story.
Hiroshi comes from both Japanese/Okinawan traditional textile and modern fine art background. Eastern/Western, traditional/modern, fine art/commercial design, hand work/high tech (CAD) are all elements Hiroshi brings in harmony and to the urban experience. Anya’s work is also a fusion of many sources of inspiration and visions of urban America such as her own heritage, the history of portraiture from Northern European Renaissance to ,early studio photography, as well as various interpretations of the subject as eclectic as eastern iconography, Russian constructivism, tribal traditions of Africa and Oceania and contemporary street art. As Anya says, “Visual and historical re-contextualization plays a crucial role in most of my work that traverses and amalgamates disparate media and time periods. Sergey has studied in Moscow art and architecture and as an artist/ architect, he always thought urban structures and art can be integrated. Lately, he has been experimenting with street-art and as a result, he came up with the idea of creating a technique using his own stencil - cutting technology and special vinyl paints. He is inspired in images and sketches he created while visiting Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. There is also going to be art work created by students who work in an art program created by Noise Organization. Noise is an arts and entrepreneurship program for youth involved in the juvenile justice system. The program provides an opportunity for participants to process and document their lives using the visual arts while learning valuable life and job skills. Through the creation of artwork exploring issues such as self-identity, hope, incarceration, and dreams- along with the exhibition and marketing of their artwork.
