“The exhibition investigates the thematic content of the title through Okamura’s gritty realism, and detailed depictions of inner-city subjects, and TheKidBelo’s boldly precise and often colorful architectural letterforms. At once complimentary and divergent, these two artists’ contrasting styles also serve to echo the wide variance found in the emotional associations with Love, Strength, and Soul – from subtle displays of altruism to resolute courage to introspective ponderance.”

The particularly interesting part of the combination of these two artist is that they are perpetually responding to urban landscapes – their work is colorful yet grim and reflects to the same conditions in urban life.
