On May 11th, New York-based artist Romon Kimin Yang (AKA Rostarr) will be unveiling a new body of work in Tokyo’s Common Gallery. Entitled IKONOCLYSM, this series of works utilizes Ro’s signature blend of iconography, calligraphy, and mind blowing graphics to express the hardship & journey which the people of Japan have endured in recent times. Rostarr recently invited AM into his Brooklyn studio to preview the works prior to them traveling to the Land of the Rising Sun. While there we got to see what made the Korean American artist tick. From his early influences as part of the Barnstormers to his sketchbooks (more on that later), it seems that style, music and culture are the driving forces that fuel his high octane artistic vision.
