Adam Kiyoshi Fujita’s spraypainted murals appear as neon lights on walls across the world. Though a 25-year veteran of crafting work in public spaces, this specific style, evoking neon tube lighting evolved in response to the current presidential administration. In this past, his work has also responded to issues around police violence, gender issues, and other social topics.
“Adams recent neon style work has been an exploration of protest and resistance through the use of the medium of street art and the internet,” a statement says. “As a response to the election results of 2016 in the US Adam has been using the neon as a metaphor for ‘keeping the lights on’ this volatile and dangerous Trump administration. Not willing to let them operate behind the shadows of Washington DC.”
