Studio Oscar Oiwa

Oscar Oiwa, brazilian painter and son of Japanese immigrants. He received his B.F.A. (1989) from the School of Architecture and Urbanism, São Paulo University. Oiwa was influenced by comic books, art, and magazines throughout his youth, as well as the urban environment of his birthplace. He experienced contemporary art during this time in nearby galleries and became an assistant at the São Paulo Art Biennial. Oiwa held his first solo exhibition while he was still in college and thereafter participated in the 21st São Paulo Art Biennial (1991).

He currently lives and works in New York City, though his artwork has been exhibited worldwide. He has had over 60 solo exhibitions since 1990, including Arizona State University Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art, Takamatsu City Museum and Museu Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro.
