For the 2016 Setouchi Triennial, Japanese-Brazilian artist Oscar Oiwa created an immersive mural inside a 40-foot inflatable dome made of vinyl. Oiwa is widely recognized for his otherworldly artworks that are made using only a black felt-tip pen. Now, the artist is planning to create another massive piece entitled BLACK & LIGHT inside a similar structure located in New York City’s Cadillac House.
Organized by Visionaire, the artist will draw a highly-detailed composition that features his signature, surreal landscapes, and characters: Light Rabbit and Shadow Cat. The inflated canvas spans a whopping 2,700 square feet of surface area. Oiwa will spend over 100 hours inside the space drawing the artwork.
The artist’s entire process will be live-streamed on a screen outside the structure for anyone to view starting February 25 until March 8. Once completed, visitors are encouraged to explore the space.
