As a Japanese, I always like to see Japanese old style art, like Ukiyo-e. My grandparents’ house was filled with Ukiyo-e style art, and it always reminds me of the time that I spent with my grandparents.

I found an artist who uses the techniques of traditional Japanese painting to create cool contemporary paintings.
Akira Yamaguchi is a Japanese contemporary artist. He combines the Japanese traditional composition style with the techniques of contemporary oil painting.

At first glance, you might think that his artworks are just beautiful Ukiyo-e paintings. But when you take a closer look, you will enjoy what he depicted in there – you can find very modern objects mixed with very traditional things. The modern objects are beautifully painted in the way of traditional Japanese painting.

Enjoy everyone!
