by Frankie Cihi
Hybrid Infinity was painted on the east facade of the 581-ft garage and wraps around the south end entrance of the garage. The hand painted piece took three weeks to complete in December 2017 by Japanese-American painter Frankie Cihi.
Cihi explores abstraction through the use of traditional Japanese forms. Frankie was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1988, and received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in 2010. She currently lives and works in Tokyo where she is best known for her colorful, geometric paintings which are often inspired by Japanese textile patterns. Over the past few years, Frankie has expanded her practice to include large-scale, outdoor murals and live paintings through which she allows viewers to watch her paint on both canvas and building exteriors. She has collaborated with Starbucks, MINI Cooper, Adobe, and Microsoft.
