Japanese-born Kenji Nakayama has been killing it in the streets of Cambridge, MA for several years now. With a formal background in engineering, it isn't surprising that his mixed-media canvases often explore the constructs of the urban environment. Detailed stenciled renderings of trains and high structures are frequent in Nakayama's work, and he successfully explores the formal, geometric qualities of all his subjects.

Nakayama's debut solo show in New York opened at Woodward Gallery on May 5. The new work is on view through July 7, 2012.
