‘Bronx Brooklyn Queens’ by Tim Okamura

For his latest solo show, now on view at Lyons Wier in New York, artist Tim Okamura delves deep into the subjects of his immediate urban landscape. The title, a subtle nod to female empowerment, 'Bronx Brooklyn Queens' projects the powerful women of the NYC landscape, transcending stereotype and re-envisioning his subjects as the royalty that they are. Part feminist, part black power, and ultimately, all empowering, 'Bronx Brooklyn Queens' pits royal portraiture against urban documentation in a life size showing of delicately rendered oils. Get a look at several of the new works here on Hi-Fructose.
