fabien merelle Freshly graduated from the Beaux-Arts, former resident of the prestigious Casa Vélasquez in Madrid, Fabien Merelle distinguishes himself through his style, at once realistic, minute and oniric. After having tamed his childhood drawings, which he completed with humor, his latest series takes its author as its main subject.Invariably dressed in pyjama trousers, a conspicuous sign that the perception of the world is done through dreams, the boy takes us with him on a fanciful ride. Fabien Merelle loves the shadowy world of tales. He re-entered it by rediscovering his childhood drawings which had been carefully preserved. He completed it with his experience and his imagination.
Ikenaga Yasunari - The Japanese Art of Nihonga Redefined Using the simplicity of indian ink and linen canvas Ikenaga Yasunari has captured a simple serenity in the the faces of his female portraits.This calm sensuality is highlighted by the richness of their surroundings. Yasunari’s Japanese heritage has inspired a style of painting which is characteristic in his work. This ancient technique of Nihonga is a traditional Japanese artform using a Menso brush and ink. With this Yasunari has successfully captured an essence of the past with a pallet of muted tones , but has injecting a modern twist to each piece with his use of pattern and cloth.

Keigetsu was active in Kyoto from the latter half of Meiji period till the beginning of Showa period, but his works still attract us more than 50 years after his death. Keigetsu was born at the present Nakano city of the Nagano prefecture, and there learned southern-style painting from KODAMA Katei. On 1896 he went to Kyoto and became a pupil of KIKUCHI Hobun next year.
Strange Gods It’s been quiet around here this week, but here’s a shot of what I’ve been up to. Hopefully this giant monstrosity will be finished within the next few days, and I can set myself upon the next. Anonymous said: WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON THE SKELETON WAR The talented women of Kyoto “Women Artists of Kyoto: Bearing Burdens / Burdens Born” is ostensibly about the classification of female artists since the late 19th century. The term “keishu-gaka” refers to accomplished women artists, “joryu-gaka” to post-World War II artists who created trends among male colleagues and “josei-gaka” simply emphasizes the feminine gender of an artist. Distinguishing between male and female interpretations of art has been historically important in Japan, and remains so. In the 1990s, the critic Kotaro Iizawa gave the name “onnanoko shashinka” (girl photographers) to an emergent generation of female artists with a penchant for taking brightly-colored photographs of everyday and intimate scenes.

For Japanese women painters, elegance came at expense of individuality “Painted by Women: Elegance of Showa Period” announces a thematic concern of the time, 1926-89, on which the art world was rigidified. Japan had embarked upon a 15-year period of war (1931-1945) and the individual expressive liberties that had informed the Taisho Era (1912-26), were being reined in. Notification
