Romeo 5 Asian Art Cafe and Bar
Japan Center - Kinokuniya Building

SAN FRANCISCO (CA, USA) - Romeo 5, Asian Art Café and Bar, will feature the artwork of local Bay Area artist, Phillip Hua from September 1st though October 31st, with the reception on September 10th, from 6-8pm. Located in the Kinokuniya building in the Japan Center, Romeo 5, a longtime supporter of the arts, regularly features artwork from the Asian community. The show, entitled “Personally Speaking…,” are abstracted illustrations of emotions and reflections, while hinting the usage of words as an artform.
Bay area native Phillip Hua is a first generation American-born Vietnamese artist. His work is bright and bold, and speaks to its viewer though collaged text, vibrant paint marks, and supple textures. He is a graduate of The Academy of Art University, with a degree in illustration. But his work leans more towards collage and abstract expressionism than on literal illustration. He has been featured in The Academy of Art University’s Annual Spring Shows and he was awarded first place in The Artist Magazine’s Student/Experimental category. He has also been exhibited in national juried shows. This will be his first solo exhibit in San Francisco.
