よいおみのりのさやさやお月さま

yoi o-minori no sayasaya o-tsuki-sama

                      A great harvest,

                      sighs, the moon content.

The Very Last Supper​, by Seattle based visual artist and gallerist Julian Peña, Japanese-Dominican born in Okinawa Japan, exhibits ​Nihonga​ traditional Japanese mineral pigment painting techniques and dissident influences from Dutch ​Vanitas​ still life symbology vibrantly recontextualized with contemporary amplification and desaturation of natural colors, vivifying food into avatars animating closely curated connections and commentaries on society’s opulent ephemerality.

BIOGRAPHY

Julian Peña (°1985, Okinawa, Japan) lives and works in Seattle, WA and a two-time recipient of South Sound Magazine’s Best Artist of the Year (2012/2013). He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions including “Fool’s Paradise at Ok Hotel & Gallery in Seattle, WA (solo) and “Strength + Struggle” at the Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, WA (group). One of his most personally pivotal career milestone was at “Dawn of 2012” group show at Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma, WA. He studied for his Bachelor of Art in Painting and Drawing at the University of Washington and took an intensive course in Nihonga (traditional Japanese mineral pigment painting) course with Judith Kruger in Savannah, GA. Currently, Peña owns a gallery and studio in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle, WA while continuing to bridge the gap between the community and art.

Peña is strongly influenced by Japanese graphic design and art. He explores many different decorative techniques and rich materials to create lavishly flat surfaces with bright and bold colors oscillating across the surfaces of his works.
