About the Artist:
Casey Kawaguchi hails from Denver, Colorado. In 2012, he was chosen as one of “20 Street Artists to Watch” by the well-known American graffiti artist Saber for the magazine Juxtapoz. His work is influenced by his Japanese-American heritage.
My artistic focus is about balance, both in design and composition. I paint my characters with precise detail in black and white, combined with bold color, to create a high-contract image that is meant to leave a lasting impression on the viewer. The eyes and face are the focal point and often create a strong emotional response.
