28. Takahiro Kitamura on Andre Malcolm
My name is Takahiro Kitamura and I’m the curator of the exhibit, Perseverance. This is a piece by Andre Malcolm. I actually invited Andre into the show after seeing this piece in person. It’s just striking, and I think at the end of the day, when we talk about the mythology and the culture of the Japanese tattoo, all of which are important, it still is a visual art. So I think visual appeal is an important thing so I chose this one solely based on aesthetic appeal. It’s a great piece.
