JAPAN COLLECTION | EXHIBITION – Sep -2019 | Bunkamura Wall Gallery – TOKYO

13 sep. 2019

At the 5th Bunkamura exhibition, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the famous Tokyo gallery in Shibuya neighborhood, after 20 years living in Japan has been engraved in my heart the Japanese art, especially the current Rimpa of the Edo era. In this exhibition they will be exhibited works that are an expression of the fusion of the Rimpa School in fusion with European art.

“Kachoufugetsu” is a Japanese expression that means flowers, birds, wind and moon. Each one is a symbol of the beauty of nature, but not only this but also the elegant taste for its appreciation and respect.

Capture in an image the evanescence of the delicate moment that nature offers us as the moment when a flower blooms. Being attracted to everyday things like a butterfly, the sound of the wind and the moonlight.

WISHES COLLECTION | EXHIBITION – Feb – 2016 | Bunkamura Gallery- TOKYO

I used to live in Japan for 19 years. I learned, following my heart, various techniques of Japanese traditional art and I fused them with my own painting techniques.

My work is influenced by Japanese culture and art, and it uses traditional materials such as platinum, gold, silver, copper, aluminum, and furthermore, it combines oriental formative art with western oil painting.

“The tree of Wishes” is a work drawn for the exhibition that was held at the embassy of Spain in 2014. The work expresses life that is changing every moment by using copper foil. I painted it hoping that this tree would fulfill the wishes of the viewers.

“Deseos” is the fruit of “The tree of Wishes”, and each one has meaning such as wealth, harmony, love and so on.
