About The Artwork

The Artwork: The headless jogger of Wailuku is a legend amongst locals. The legend says that if you drive south of the Waihee Saint Ann Parish Cemetery on Kahekili Hwy after midnight, you can pull off the road, turn your headlights down, wait for a beat an turn it back on. When you turn your lights back on you will see the faint figure of a jogger run past you. Everything would seem normal until you notice that the jogger is holding his head in his hands. The ghost is believed to be the result of a hit and run incident from the 1980's. 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 t-shirt transfer sheets which are stitched together and mounted onto vinyl. Thin amounts of acrylic paint are applied to the front and back of the painting.

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.
