Tomokazu Matsuyama, or Matzu amid art circles, is known to combine modern artistic styles with traditional Japanese context, amalgamating East and West in unique renditions filled with mystical sensibility. Growing up in both Japan and the U.S., Matzu’s aesthetics are endearing to both cultures, merging the juxtaposition with acute color palettes and lively illustrations. The Brooklyn-based artist’s latest venture sees “Palimpsest” a new exhibition at Reischauer Institute, Harvard University. Celebrating the gallery’s 40th anniversary, the stunning showcase features classic and fresh paintings for those in the Boston area. Running until November 1, be sure to check out “Palimpsest” if you’re in town.
