Known to most as Enfu, Seattle-based artist Ken Taya's work speaks to generations of Asian Americans. From the gritty exploration of his cultural identity to fatherhood to the evolution of his artistic style to kawaii or "cute" in Japanese, Community Stories examines the whimsical and cross-cultural relevance of Enfu's work, which has won him fans around the world. Known for a body of work that includes video-game design, printmaking, fashion and comic strips, Enfu's projects meld culture and coolness and are set to help illustrate Seattle's Japantown renaissance. Produced, directed, photographed and edited by Ian Devier.
