Co-founder, Art Director, Curator : 2016—︎

is a multidisciplinary Los Angeles based artist collective working in Little Tokyo.

NOH / WAVE was founded by Justin Daashuur Hopkins and Yoshino in the spring of 2016.

In the Japanese tradition of Noh theatre, there is often a supernatural being that shifts to human form to personify the heroic journey. This works as a metaphor for divine inspiration and is the seed for all great works of art. This is an important homage to the co-founders Japanese American heritage.

NOH / WAVE, similar to the New Wave movements, is more concerned with innovation rather than traditionalism and seeks to expand the cultural lexicon through organic communal growth.

NOH / WAVE celebrates collaboration with the belief that true brilliance lies between the intersection and interaction of varying experiences and insights.

“There is no new wave only the ocean.”
- Claude Chabrol
