Oscar Oiwa brings his immersie mural work to USC Pacific Asia Museum with the new installation “Dreams of a Sleeping World.” The artist describes this new work as a “360° dreamscape,” created over two weeks and handrawn with 120 Sharpie markers. Oiwa was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Visitors stepping into the dome will be surrounded by otherworldly imagery of swirling cloud and earth forms,” the museum says. “Just outside the installation will be a suite of colorful and surreal landscape paintings by Oiwa. Known for his large-scale paintings, his cityscapes and forest-scapes often defy the laws of physics with animals and specters swimming through the skies. Oiwa’s work uses fantasy to address the transformation of the environment, each image acts as an allegory of existential threats to the world.”
