Collection: Nishi

Contemporary Japanese prints* are a very lively and vibrant section in modern Japanese culture. There is a great number of excellent artists working in Japanese style. Some are great stars - well-known to an International audience like Takiji Kubo  or Shiraishi Yuko. Their prints are in the collections of museums in New York, San Francisco or Boston. Others are emerging and many are still unknown. 

Nishi belongs to the group of emerging and internationally acclaimed young artists.

Nishi's work is based on Japanese Calligraphy, Ukiyoe Art and Japanese Family Crests. She is also into the seasons, each season in Japan has a vivid difference in color and is reflected in her Art. 

During the creation process, the work talks to Nishi. The artist closely communicates with her work while she is working. Materials for the artwork are also very important. When you see Nishi's work, you can see dynamic brush strokes and the characteristic detail in the piece. The artist intention is to create a new wave/style in art merging Painting and Japanese calligraphy. 

Nishi uses various tools and materials, such as Spray paint and Washi-paper, however, most of Nishi's work is created using a Japanese brush and Sumi-paint. 

*Japanese printmaking started in the 17th century. It has become one of the most appreciated art forms the world has ever seen. Over a period of several centuries Japanese prints have seen many different styles, revitalizations, changes and new developments. There have been commercial ups and downs and twists, but each period had great achievements of its own and great artists who produced fascinating works. And there is no ending in sight.
