On June 2, IS: Fine Art & Design hosted the first gallery event for the artist duo BLECHMEKI.
Max Blechman and Kazu Umeki of BLECHMEKI are artists with a unique artistic vision centered around photographing vintage, factory made Americana pottery, posed in multiple variations. Their pieces are completed using a team effort; with Max finding and collecting these unique objects, and posing them in varying compositions, while Kazu completes the piece by photographing the arrangements.
The artists were excited upon entering the gallery space to see their large-scale work filling the walls.
The many guests that came to the gallery to view BLECHMEKI’s work were entranced by the images seen before them. The team at IS: Fine Art & Design had a lot of fun with the guests, explaining the ingenious process behind BLECHMEKI’s work. Overall, a lovely time was had by all, aided by the constant flow of drinks from our amazing Bartenders from On the Rocks.
