About Artist

Seiji Yoshimura

Yoshimura's artwork is characterized by a high-level layout composition which is considered to have totally changed the expression of Japanese figurative paintings of the past, and a technique of peeling multilayered mineral paints acquired through a research of classical paintings to realize the unique colour expression. Thus his highly artistic works are regarded as the greatest contemporary figurative paintings.
