Art Break: Drawing Life! with Rob Sato

About the Event

Rob Sato is an artist, illustrator, and writer living and working in Los Angeles. Known for his watercolors and extensive drawing practice, he traverses a wide range of expression exploring the spaces between pictorial narrative and abstraction. Weaving autobiographical, historical, and fantastical imagery together, he mixes humor and beauty to create a wild, lush, and enigmatic dimension that overlays our own. He has exhibited his work around the world, including at the Japanese American National Museum. His work has been featured in publications such as Juxtapoz Magazine, The New York Times, Giant Robot Magazine, and New American Painting.

Inspired by the work of Stanley Hayami, featured in our upcoming exhibition, A Life in Pieces, Sato will lead us through some drawing games with memory recording, journaling, and autobiography in mind, in this interactive workshop designed to spark creativity in the middle of your day.

This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition, A Life in Pieces: The Diary and Letters of Stanley Hayami

This workshop is free, but RSVPs are required using the ticket link.
