The Art of Yoshiyasu Tamura
Yoshiyasu Tamura is a japanse artist with a unique style, recognisable from all others. He is also an author and a mangaka, but this is his portraits and drawings that we want to focus on here. His artworks are the subject of many exhibitions all around the world, and we can easily understand why !
The artist like tp mix different styles, principaly classic manga drawings, and add his own imagination with some modern hints. He get his inspiration from ancient Japanese painters, including Utamaro, asking himself what all those artists would come up in a world like the present one. He also ask himself what if a painter like Botticelli had come to Japan, how would he have affected his own art. The result of all this process is something deeply breathtaking, between classicism and modern.
