Akira Ishiguro


Akira Ishiguro's (b.1974) Marble painting series are drawn precisely to reproduce the real item.

In his recent series of Marblesque paintings, Ishiguro adopted a technique using ‘metamorphism by heat’, which multiplies the marble-generation process in creating more dynamic and chaotic images.
