Join us for a special night of art, love, and support at Gamut Gallery’s Benefit Fundraiser for Yuya Negishi!
Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 5th, 2023, for a special night of art, love, and support at Gamut Gallery’s Benefit Fundraiser for Yuya Negishi! Tickets are only $20 with all proceeds going directly to supporting Yuya Negishi’s journey to recovery and to celebrate his priceless contribution to Gamut Gallery’s heart and the wider community. Let’s rally together for an artist who has given us so much beauty and inspiration.
Celebrating the talent of a beloved artist and muralist in the Twin Cities community, Yuya Negishi’s work is a playful blend of classical Japanese calligraphy and SUMI techniques with vibrant Japanese pop culture imagery like koi, dragons, and Buddhas, infused with street-art influences from his time in urban America. His artwork is not just a feast for the eyes; it’s an expression of cultural heritage, wonder, and amusement, resonating with the energy of those around him. Many have experienced the magic firsthand during Yuya’s live painting at events and his murals across Minneapolis.
Yuya faced a challenging health crisis last year, leaving him unable to work for over 9 months. But his determination and spirit are unwavering, and he’s now on the path to reclamation, slowly returning to his artistic journey. Yuya needs the love and support of his loyal friends and community, which is why we’re coming together to show him just how much he means to us. Let’s shine our light on him, just like he has on our city! Yuya’s captivating artworks will fill the gallery and this is an opportunity to be immersed in his experiential LED light installations featuring more than 8500 bulbs that will transport your senses to the magical world of Yuya-Town. All of Yuya’s works will be for sale, with proceeds being donated directly to Yuya to help with his recovery. Don’t miss this chance to be part of something truly special!
