We’ve never understood why the arts of cooking and painting aren’t more closely aligned. Leave it to hometown creative Brian Gibb to remedy that. Gibb, you see, collaborated recently with Hypnotic Sushi owner Harlan Hill and chef Tony Gonzalez to whip up some white-cube magic for Oak Lawn’s recently opened sushi stop. Now alongside spicy salmon rolls, Gibb has curated pop-inflected scenes by Brent Ozaeta for the front dining nook. But dominating the interior is a show-stopping mural, a droll take on anime and the cult of the cute, which was crafted by Taro-Kun in tandem with Gibb, whose day job is owner and director of famous Deep Ellum gallery stop The Public Trust. 3211 Oak Lawn Ave., 214.520.6248; hypnoticsushi.com.tumblr.com.
