1. Profile introduction

Author name: Erika Nakanishi


The faces and figures of the gods that appear in Japanese picture scrolls are so scary that they are depicted in such a way that they cannot be seen, and people were attracted to the values ​​and expression methods of ancient people who depicted them in human form because of their divine nature, and the expression of classical Japanese paintings became popular. By depicting deterioration over time, viewers from the period in which the work was created are interested in the craft-like decorativeness, the symbolism of the era, and the characteristics of story and period expression. He is developing a series of works that allow viewers of today's real world to read the story from a bird's-eye view.

2. Work introduction

It is a work that calms your mind with its gentle coloring that makes you feel like a scroll and the Japanese color scheme.

Sumi ink, suiboshi, foil, gold paint, mineral pigments, hemp paper, gampi


It is said to be a small picture scroll-like piece that depicts the interesting idea of ​​how concepts held by people in the past appear in modern landscapes.

I think the combination of people from the past and a convenience store is a very interesting work, as it feels a little strange! It's fun to watch as you can see the movement of people being surprised when they see the convenience store.

3. Recommended points

The depiction is similar to that of a Japanese picture scroll, and depicts unrealistic scenes that blend the modern and the past, making you imagine various eras!

Many of Mr. Nakanishi's works give you a sense of Japan, and they have a nostalgic feel that soothes the soul 😊

Recommended for those who want a Japanese-style room or a Japanese-style room!
