Akira Ohiso is an artist, writer and musician living in Seattle. He received a BA in Studio Art in 2001 and a Masters of Social Work degree in 2004.
As both an artist and social worker, he creates work that explores his mixed-race identity, systemic realities and societal change. While past work was representational and documentarian in nature, his latest work utilizes collage and mixed-media techniques to create abstract more subjective interpretations.
In Apopalyptic, his use of pop culture iconography sourced from the internet explores the concepts of “exceptionalism” and “impermanence.”
