Bonner David Galleries New York Presents Milt Kobayashi, “Primaries,” An Exhibition of New Work

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Bonner David Galleries New York invites you to experience “Primaries,” a collection of new work by world-renowned, local New York painter Milt Kobayashi, in an exhibition that begins on December 7th. In this collection, Kobayashi explores the power and beauty of the three primary colors.

Milt Kobayashi’s paintings are a blend of realism and romance, with fanciful and colorful figures, varying textures, mesmerizing, masterful brushstrokes, and abstract backgrounds that simultaneously create both contrast and harmony.

As a third-generation Japanese American from New York City, Milt Kobayashi’s work is influenced in part by Japanese artistry, including manga drawings and Japanese woodblock prints, and inspired by everyday observations that stem from the colors, ideas, and figurative images of the city he calls home.

While color has always sparked inspiration, palette has typically been secondary for Milt Kobayashi—until now. In this latest collection, the color sets the tone. He has embraced chromatics, focusing on the three primary colors of red, yellow, and blue to both convey the tone and personality of each subject and complement their abstract surroundings.

Each painting offers a glimpse into the soul of his figures, capturing a fleeting moment of profound personal reflection and emotion, enticing the viewer to immerse themselves in each intimate, quiet drama.

Milt Kobayashi’s “Primaries” will be on exhibition at Bonner David Galleries New York from December 7th through January 5th, with an opening reception on Thursday, December 7th from 6-8 pm. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the artist and experience his exquisite new collection of work.
