Nathan Ota is a graffiti legend who grew up painting with fellow artists like Risk in Los Angeles in the 80′s. His diligence led him on a successful route of fine art and this exhibition at GR2 will feature smaller original works and a few exciting new products and previews of things to come. His works are vibrant and detailed and his technique is unabashed.
Ota attended University High School (local to the gallery) and this exhibition will be a sort of a “homecoming.” When he’s not painting, Ota teaches art at both Otis College of Art and Design and at Santa Monica College.
Ota recently collaborated with Osiris and R!SK on a new shoe available now at http://www.osirisshoes.com/shop/categories/mens/shoes/lifestyle/nyc83-vlc/
