Yes, we know that Yumiko Kayukawa‘s opening reception for Wild Wild East happened over two weeks ago; yet Thanksgiving and Aqua Art Miami have kept us busy. We haven’t forgotten about sweet Yumiko, who looked dazzling as ever in a room full of her paintings on November 14th, 2009. It was also great to see Mike Giant, C3, Akira, Aaron Nagel, Casey Gray, Fanee, Erik Otto, D Young V, and other artists here showing support.
If you missed the chance to meet Yumiko in person, read the interview she gave us here. Also be sure to view her full exhibition online and scroll down for flicks from the opening reception. You can catch the last days of Wild Wild East through this Saturday, December 5th at The Shooting Gallery for a playful dose of Yumiko’s imagination.

Saturday night at The Shooting Gallery was a grand success. Shawn Barber was all smiles as friends from around the country gathered to celebrate his newest installment of the accomplished series, Tattooed Portraits – Snapshots.
In attendance were such legendary tattooists as George Campise, Mike Davis, Grime, and Henry Lewis. Not to mention the comedian Margaret Cho and artists like Isabel Samaras, Van Arno, Aaron Nagel, C3, Kevin Earl Taylor, Mike Giant, Nate Van Dyke, and Jeremy Fish. We were proud to host so many of our favorite individuals in one building and we thank you all for showing support. Enjoy this photo recap of the night.
