Migrating Dreamscapes: Nobuo Anzai
January 11 @ 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 6, 2018
Nobuo Anzai’s paintings are heartfelt memories of countries he calls homes— Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Japan. They are unseparated in his mind and heart through his life’s passages as a migrant worker, farmer, chef and artist. The Fukushima born Anzai spent his childhood during the upheaval years of the Pacific War. At age 23, he emigrated to Brazil to serve two years in agricultural farming as part of a contract with the Japanese and Brazilian government. Upon completing this obligation, he trained to become a sushi chef and opened his first shop in São Paulo. A natural and adventurous journeyman at heart, Anzai would spend the next four decades migrating to Colombia, Spain and Los Angeles, California. His chosen path is in part life’s necessity for survival and at spiritual depths, a yearning for connecting to these native countries.
