"The works of Inejiro Koizumi are influenced by his childhood in Northern California as well as his personal journey with depression. Never afraid to try something outside of the mainstream, Koizumi-san immersed himself in the culture of Japan seeking relief in a society that more naturally matched his own internal workings. His works display a fusion of Japanese influences and insights from his own youthful associations with Latin gangs during his adolescence in Northern California."
