Modern American artist Stanton Macdonald-Wright founded the obscure art style of synchromism, which is characterized by shapes in movement similar to the way musical notes represent sound. While this style defines Macdonald-Wright, his series of paintings capturing his love for Japanese Haiga paintings is also an important series to notice. Fusing his signature color palette and playful movement of shapes, 'The Haiga Portfolio' collection of works showcase his vibrant exploration of traditional Japanese woodblock techniques. On view now at Laguna Art Museum, this series of twenty works is a gorgeous look at a forgotten legend of the avant-garde.
