Trevor Shimizu is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice encompasses performance, video, and sculptures, yet it is his paintings and drawings, which allows him the fastest and most direct way of visualizing an idea. Shimizu is primarily concerned with the generic and cliché situations of everyday life, whilst simultaneously being informed by popular media.
