Hikari is participating in Alexi Era Gallery's upcoming group show, "Empathic" with a new addition to her "Children of Emptiness" series. This exhibition is created in a partnership with the You Rock Foundation. One in four people have or will struggle from a diagnosable mental health struggle in their lifetime. There is an intense need for awareness of this difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work.
Hikari Shimoda has created two new paintings for the "Below the Surface" Group Show which opens this Saturday at Corey Helford Gallery 's Gallery 2 space in Los Angeles. Hikari will be joining 30 internationally acclaimed artists from around the world in the group show featuring works that have a deeper, if not darker, meaning below their surface.
