My good friend Matthew (ChiFung) Wong is exhibiting some beautiful flower paintings at Resobox in Queens, NY.
ChiFung's works feature refined botanical designs over gold or silver backgrounds. inspired by Isson Tanaka, a Japanese Nihonga artist from the Shōwa period. If you're in the area, I hope you'll have a chance to see this inspiring blend of modern and traditional Japanese aesthetics.
