|From Audart's Tributes
The art I remember best during the Audart Gallery days were the Kenta Furusho sculptures, all set up in a circle in a large room. That was Audart's first exhibition ever. I visited the gallery often just to stand amid Kenta's sculptures of children - they were magical. Carole Newbigging

Kenta Furusho was one of the first artists to exhibit at the Audart Gallery. His sculptures created a sensation in Audart's inaugural exhibition "The Urban Frontier", most of them patterned after the "Baby Boy" icon which Furusho has used repeatedly in his work to convey messages of freedom and emancipation. He also participated in Audart's "TNT" exhibition in the Spring of 1996.
Kenta has experimented in many mediums including painting, lithography, sculpting and in numerous styles including minimalist, representational, narrative, abstract and symbolic. He has exhibited at the Longwood Gallery, Bronx, New York; The Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, Queens, New York and at the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York, among many others. He has also received numerous grants and awards and was nominated for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award.
Kenta was born in Kumamoto Japan and his work is included in the permanent research archive at the Asian American Arts Center in New York city.
