Lives and works in NYC

Artist Gabriel Asoka (The Mazeking) is best known for creating colorful, layered and vibrant artworks that provoke emotions, transporting the viewer into another mindset or state of sensation. Asoka’s imaginative exploration of various themes, from sexuality to consciousness, lead us to a richer and often a more provocative perspective of the work and ourselves. He primarily produces paintings, drawings and layered-photographic works.
