Akira Ishiguro

Japan


For Akira Ishiguro (b.1974), who has exhibited at many international art fairs, marble epitomises nature's beauty, transcribing ‘the line extracting the law of nature’ like sutras filling a canvas. It is also a symbol of wealth and power as seen in the marble covered buildings of the Roman Empire.

 

Akira Ishiguro's Marble painting series are drawn precisely to reproduce the real item. By doing this, Ishiguro echoes 19th century European ‘faux finish’ techniques and attempts to consider the ‘truth in the false’. In his recent series of Marblesque paintings, Ishiguro adopted a technique using ‘metamorphism by heat’, which multiplies the marble-generation process in creating more abstract impressionist works.


Yu Chuan

Taiwan


Yu Chuan (b.1982) is a contemporary artist who graduated from National Taiwan University of Arts. He lived in Spain, Italy, Japan and other countries for inspirational artistic creation. Now residing in Shanghai, Yu Chuan combines Western materials with the Eastern culture and painting techniques.

 

With color an important element in Yu’s work, he uses Chinese brush techniques and Western oil colors to express freedom and life on canvas. The use of oil colors are used to inspire a sense of happiness. Yu seeks to have his creations breathe through his use of brush techniques and choice of natural colors.
