USC Pacific Asia Museum is pleased to announce Dreams of a Sleeping World, a solo exhibition featuring an immersive mural and landscape paintings by Oscar Oiwa. The expansive site-specific mural, Dreams of a Sleeping World, commissioned by the Museum, is described by the artist as a 360° dreamscape. The mural will be completely hand-drawn by Oiwa, his assistant, and four USC Roski School of Fine Art MFA students using approximately 120 Sharpie permanent markers. The drawing will be nearly 800 square feet.
Oscar Oiwa is known for his giant canvases and large frescoes. Oiwa has exhibited internationally and his work is included in renowned private and public collections. Oiwa received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 1997 and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2001.
