Interview With Enfu: An Exercise In Simplification
I had the lovely opportunity of meeting Ken Taya, aka artist Enfu at a festival hosted by the University of Washington’s Japanese Student Association. He had a booth next to me, and naturally, I was quickly drawn into Enfu’s colorful, bold, and adorable characters, which later I discovered each had carefully thought-out, cute and perky stories behind their birth. When I visited Enfu’s booth, he was very friendly and gave me a tour of his artwork, many of which I had seen in locations around Seattle, as well as in a gallery in Los Angeles I had randomly encountered only a week before. I fell in love with Enfu’s vibrant and iconic artwork, and more in love with Enfu’s kind-hearted, generous, and easygoing personality.
