Keita Morimoto's paintings inspired by Edward Hopper

I'm hoping to see Toronto-based artist Keita Morimoto's latest series of paintings, entitled Light Passage. The classical compositions and dramatic use of light and dark are inspired by the works of Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, William Eggleston and others. There are subtle references to anime, street fashion and youthful rebellion that refer back to Morimoto's Japanese heritage. 

Morimoto's Light Passage at the Nicholas Metivier Gallery in Toronto from 8 February until 3 March 2018.
