About The Artwork

The Artwork: Lahainaluna High School, originally named Lahainaluna Seminary was once haunted by a anxious ghost of a girl who can be heard moving inside of a classroom at night. Her action stops once you open the door. Nothing in the room seemed to have been touched. Sometimes a weeping sound of a girl can be heard to echo throughout the school. There are currently no explanation to who this girl is or why she haunted the campus. The Process: This painting was created with digital and traditional techniques. First I begin with traditional graphite and ink drawings with backgrounds completed in watercolor and acrylic washes. I then imported into Photoshop where the final image is printed onto acetate. Thin amounts of acrylic paint are applied to the front and back of the acetate and figures are sealed with an opaque coat of white paint. A thick coat of glitter has been sprayed and sealed on the back side of the painting. In the final stage, the acetate is mounted to Plexiglas or Lucite.

Edwin Ushiro's work resonates with the echoes of his boyhood in the "slow town" of Wailuku on the Hawaiian island of Maui. In his paintings, he recalls the sun-struck days of youth, when the world was fresh and magical, but also explores the eerie folklore indigenous to dark country roads and the boundless depths of the childhood imagination. While structuring his work around the narrative tradition of "talk story" native to the Hawaiian islands, he interweaves the uncanny obake tales of his Japanese heritage. Working in a unique mixed media technique which involves laboring in ink and acrylic over sheets of Lucite printed with assemblages of his more traditional drawings and paintings, he creates reflections on the past that are luminous and nostalgic, like cherished memories burnished by the passage of time. After earning a BFA with Honors in Illustration from Art Center College of Design, he worked in the entertainment industry as a storyboard artist, concept designer and visual consultant. More recently, he has exhibited in venues worldwide, including Villa Bottini in Italy, the Museum of Kyoto, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Japanese American National Museum. In 2016, Edwin created his first and second mural as a participant of both POW! WOW! Hawaii and Long Beach. A monograph of his artwork, entitled Gathering Whispers, has been published by Zero+ Publishing. He lives and works between Los Angeles and Maui.
