Akira Yamaguchi

Painted on vast canvasses these cityscapes capture immense, almost microscopic detail of technology and machinery’s role in the organic Japanese city. The preoccupation of the paintings contrast the traditional with the cutting edge, a fascination prominent in Japanese culture. Yamaguchi’s work is characteristically complex, paying homage to masters like Hokusai and Hiroshige, and at the same time has qualities that are strikingly original and contemporary.
