Using urban graffiti techniques (spray-paint and stencils), Wakuda references both modern and ancient Japanese aesthetics such as ukiyo-e woodblock prints and the contemporary superflat movement. A painter creates an image on a surface. A muralist examines that surface’s relationship to its surrounding environment and culture.

Jonathan Wakuda Fischer combines elements from pop culture, Japanese folklore and the aesthetic of ukiyo-e woodblock prints to create paintings with multiple layers of reference and homage that explore cultural dualities. Fischer is known for his distinctive murals and wall paintings, including the KEXP building and the upcoming Hirabayashi Place project in Seattle’s International District. His artwork has been covered by numerous publications including the Seattle Times and the Stranger. Fischer has been a mentor artist for the Wing Luke Asian Museum’s award-winning YouthCAN program and artist in residence at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City. He is the resident muralist for Seattle firm SkB Architects, an innovative partnership between the worlds of architecture and fine art.
