Kenji Nakayama is profiled in our January 2011 issue, and the piece we featured in the magazine sits outside the Woodward Gallery Project Space in NYC. The piece was up from October through December, but our guess is that you may still be able to see across from Woodward Gallery right now. See what our contributing editor, Caleb Neelon, had to say about Kenji, originally from Hokkaido, Japan, in our latest Juxtapoz:

Kenji Nakayama's work has always impressed me for its craft and humility, qualities that he reinforced after I had the chance to meet and work with him as well.  Born in Hokkaido, he lived in Japan until coming to Boston, where he attended the Butera School of Art, an intensive sign-painting and commercial art trade school. There, he refined sign painting and pinstriping abilities, which he's combined with some astonishing stenciling technique, creating images of city scenes based on his photographs. In such talented hands, the two converge beautifully together. Caleb Neelon
