Ikenaga Yasunari – The Japanese Art of Nihonga Redefined

print (6)“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 art form 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.”
