L.A.’s Jeff Nishinaka redefines the very idea of paper with his obsessively white bas relief sculptures. His images pop out at you in 3-D as if they were cast in plaster or carved out of stone. The whiteness of these pieces really emphasize the contrast between light and shadow, to appeal to his audience.
Nishinaka’s works have been featured everywhere, from hotel gardens, private commissions, medical illustrations, fashion, fine art and even advertising for companies like Coca Cola, Visa, American Airlines, Toyota, Playboy, and Mattel. His art has also been used for catalogues for Les Galleries Lafayette in France, and Bloomingdales in the U.S. Funnily enough, the biggest collector of his work worldwide, is his actor friend – Jackie Chan.
