Looking Back At The Future

The Wave Of The Future

Borrowing from Japanese artist Hokusai’s famed 1832 work, The Great Wave off Kanagawa comes its highly-pixelated 1990s’ re-interpretation. The work, featuring an ominous wave looming in the face of a skilled fisherman, is meant to express the difference between strength and skill as well as their relationship. Fittingly enough, today’s modern “Wave” can be found in none other than New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.
