A. Enjoy Authentic Contemporary Art

Kana Uwatoko, Keisuke Tsuchida, and Miho Nishikawa are introduced. All artists are remarkable for their unique way of thinking about painting.

Kana Uwatoko

Born in 1995 in Kagoshima, Kana Uwatoko has been exploring Japanese aesthetic sensibilities while using yokai as a motif. Kana Uwatoko sees in the colors and composition of ukiyoe and Edo paintings of the Meiji period a complete system of Japanese art, and she creates paintings that combine the aesthetic elements inherent in Japanese art with a modern sensibility.

In the Edo period (1603-1868), yokai were a major motif for painters, but they began to disappear from the Japanese art world with the westernization of the Meiji Restoration. Uwatoko looks back at the history of Japanese art and creates works that show that Japan has always had its own excellence.

Keisuke Tsuchida

There is a culture in Japan that conveys something through the depiction of characters and stories, just like manga and anime. While Keisuke Tsuchida consistently uses the theme of the “heart”, he does not draw directly but rather narrates his story through a science-fiction-like worldview.

One of the characteristics of his work is that it is drawn entirely with a pencil. Using only vertical lines, he takes a long time to create a piece of art. These works may seem easy to understand, but they are also deeply physical in nature, with traces of the artist’s physicality in his thoughts and hand movements.

Miho Nishikawa

She is an artist who has been pursuing the “visible and invisible”. She doesn’t have a definite finished form when she begins to paint but rather changes while she is painting and completes her work at the moment she feels it is finished. When she begins to paint, she doesn’t have a clear idea of what she’s going to do.

Nishikawa’s paintings of ambiguous worlds are, in a sense, the high road to literature and art. After all, her paintings are famous for being featured on the cover of Naoki Matayoshi’s “Hibana”.

B. A Broad Taste of Contemporary Art

Hironobu Naito

It is said that among many animals, only human beings perform the act of prayer.

The paintings of Mr. Naito try to recreate the sense of divinity and wonder that one feels when one is struck by a moment of silence.

The deep blue color that expresses silence is a characteristic feature of Naito’s work, but the paints he uses are mineral paints.

The artist uses rock paint, which is produced by crushing minerals into a powder, to produce matte colors that are different from oil paints.

Harumi Takahashi

Normally, sound cannot be seen with the eyes. Takahashi tries to express this sound, which can only be captured by the ear, in his paintings. Sound, in other words, is a phenomenon created by the vibration of an object. She depicts the state of sound by drawing deeply into the picture plane.

Keisuke Tsuchida

There is a culture in Japan that conveys something through the depiction of characters and stories, just like manga and anime. While Keisuke Tsuchida consistently uses the theme of the “heart”, he does not draw directly but rather narrates his story through a science-fiction-like worldview.

One of the characteristics of his work is that it is drawn entirely with a pencil. Using only vertical lines, he takes a long time to create a piece of art. These works may seem easy to understand, but they are also deeply physical in nature, with traces of the artist’s physicality in his thoughts and hand movements.

Kos cos

One of the major genres of painting is “portraiture,” in which the artist paints people’s faces. Kos cos does some detailed work, such as sketches of faces, but then focuses on the colors of energy that appear on a person’s face, rather than on the realism of the depiction. One of the attractions of Kos cos’ work is the boldness with which he directly expresses the colorful emotions of joy, anger, sadness, and sorrow on a person’s face.

Ayaka Tadano

What is interesting about Ms. Tadano’s work is that she paints landscapes that evoke memories and emotions in the viewer’s mind. What is interesting about her work is that she paints landscapes that evoke memories and emotions in the viewer’s mind, as if she is trying to make us confront our own memories and the past by depicting a commonplace scene that we have all seen before. It could be said that this work focuses on the relationship between the viewer and the artwork.

Beniko Choji

One of the characteristics of her paintings is that she tries to depict people’s sudden emotions. People throw tantrums, feel happy or sad for some reason, but all of them will disappear sooner or later. She tries to keep the “fading peaks of emotions” in her paintings. Painting those moments can be as ephemeral and beautiful as watching a flower fall away.

Beniko Choji《A Story》 Price for Original(Ref):2,200USD

Gyula Szabo

Szabo’s paintings are very much a narrative structure, depicting a scene from his worldview as he conceived it. There are many paintings based on the Bible in Europe in the Middle Ages, and while he uses a common story as his subject, he doesn’t tell it too much, which gives the viewer the freedom to travel through the world of the painting.

Gyula Szabo《SPIRAL》 Price for Original(Ref):1,500USD

Mikhail Gulin

Born in Belarus, Gulin is both a painter and a sculptor, and his sculptural, physical depictions of the body are characteristic of his work, and the combination of these two elements, a sculpture that captures the world in 3D and a painting that captures the world in 2D, results in a work of great depth, but at the same time, it is also a work of art that is akin to a painting. The fact that they have a challenging attitude to update is also appealing.

Mikhail Gulin《Now you see me》 Price for Original(Ref):7,000USD

Amador Sevilla

He uses a technique called collage, in which he not only uses paint, but also sticks together magazine clippings and other materials to create images. Although his work is in the style of steampunk science fiction, his works have a mysterious charm, suggesting a future world and asking the viewer to think about the future.

Prints – Art for Everyone

History and Types of Prints

This is one of the techniques originally invented to copy (duplicate) letters and other information on paper.
After creating a base for the base, which is called a printing plate, ink is applied to it, and it is transferred to paper.
In China, old prints are so familiar to mankind that they are as old as 1,000 years old, and ukiyoe prints were also popular during the Edo period.

There are several types of prints, which can be classified according to the structure of the plate as follows
① Letterpress ….. In this type, the part of the plate you want to draw or write on is protruding.
② Intaglio: ….. Intaglio is a type of printing in which the area to be painted or written on is depressed. It was often used in medieval Western art, such as copperplate printing.
③ Slab painting ….. A type of painting in which a picture is drawn on an uneven stone or metal surface and printed using the repulsive action of water and oil. This technique is also known as lithography and is now used in offset printing as well.
④ Stencil printing ….. This is a type of printmaking in which a number of small holes are made in the surface of a plate. It was used for commercial purposes during the twentieth century because of its ease of mass production. It is also called silkscreen.Reference: Musashino Art UniversityHP

Commercialization and Editions of Printmaking Technology

In the modern era, prints have taken on the commercial meaning of reproductions.
For example, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
The mass production of the Mona Lisa, the only one of its kind, makes it possible for anyone to easily display Da Vinci’s masterpiece in their homes.

However, an important element of art is rarity.
In the art world, however, it is possible to create scarcity by limiting production, which is called “edition”.
“The number of editions is 20” means that there are only 20 of this work in the world.

An editioned work is assigned a number called an edition number and is sometimes signed by the artist.

A reverse distinction is made by referring to un-editioned prints as “open edition”.

Prints are Still Being Updated.

In addition to the four methods we just mentioned, there is another method called giclee printing.
Giclee is a new type of print that has been developed in recent years, where the original data is created and printed by inkjet, or machine. It is characterized by the ability to achieve a higher level of reproduction.

Innovation at DNP

The printing technology used in this project is PrimoArt (high color printing, details below), which is the culmination of DNP’s printing know-how cultivated over many years.

While conventional printing uses four colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), DNP uses ten inks to express a wide range of colors in contrast to the conventional four-color printing that uses a balance of four colors. strong>.

In contemporary art, complex color schemes, strokes and touches in a work of art make it impossible to reach for the details with conventional printing. For this exhibition, we are using a printing machine with 10 color inks and a camera with over 100 million pixels to capture the original images.
One of the charms of prints is that the images (pictures) can be enjoyed to the fullest.
 That is why it is necessary to faithfully reproduce the expression of color and the traces of the artist’s brushstrokes.
