Kaoru Shibuta abstract work is stunning. His work is based on the research of music and natural sounds which are then translated into visual explorations of the theory of synesthesia, or “joined perception.” This experience happens when one sense triggers another, such as seeing a shape when you taste something. Come see our final creations from our mural exchange with Kaoru in Japan. Join us to celebrate Japan and Kaoru on February 11 for our Global Arts Festival.

The wonderful Evan Daley @daleypaintings working on our #InternationalMuralByMail exchange with Kaoru Shibuta @shibuta_arts in Japan! Kaoru's abstract work is quite different from our usual style, and that's pushed the conversation in some really interesting directions--which is collaboration at its best! #international #collaboration #abstract
Some more work-in-progress from Kaoru Shibuta for the #InternationalMuralByMail! "The moon repeats the cycle of waxing and waning...The painting is inspired Bach and Mozart...The composition seemed like a shape of being infinite. I painted according the drawing of nature."
