Illustrator Eri Wakiyama is gearing up to present a new solo show at Procell that is set to debut this week. Known for her depictions of various unnamed girls taking part in different life (and fantasy) scenarios, Wakiyama will present a selection of colorful watercolor and acrylic works.
Wakiyama often plays with abstraction in her imagery, creating illustrations that toy the line between anime and sketches. Some of her past pieces highlight the mystery girls doing everyday things like drawing and eating, while others extend more into the make-believe world.
Wakiyama’s exhibition will begin on Thursday, August 1 at the Procell store in New York and is slated to run for three weeks long.
