I continue to publish artworks that pursue Japanese beauty by participating in exhibitions and art fairs centered on Europe five to ten times a year. For my artworks, the beauty of surface and the beauty of inner are very important.

ABOUT ME

Souske was born in Japan in 1969. But his first memory is in Russia. In his childhood, he lived in Russia and visited European countries. He studied Japanese painting at art school and traveled to Japan. It's to help him solve his identity. First solo exhibition, 1994. Since 2011, he continue to publish works that pursue Japanese beauty by participating in exhibitions and art fairs centered on Europe five to ten times a year. For his works, the beauty of surface and the beauty of inner are very important.

 Fine Artist O.Souske is, using traditional Japanese painting materials / techniques and mainly produces planar works.The main artwork series is “Bijin-Ga” = “beautiful female painting”.  There is, such as "landscape", "cat" in the other series.

The surface motifs are different, but what is common to each is "pursuit of beauty".

"Beautiful things" than "The theme or concept you want to express" is important for Souske's work.   I would like them to be "art in beauty", not "art for searching for answers" or "art for themes".  When the audience sees my artwork, "They forget the words" "My thoughts stop" is my hope. It is the same as the state that occurs when a person is looking at the beautiful scenery and sights.

EXPERTISE

The painting of Sosuke is based on the technique and materials of Japanese paintings. Paint is "Iwa enogu". It contains natural ores and gems, crushed artificially made rocks (lump of ceramic glazes), shells, or crystals. They are sand state. Glue is “Nikawa”. It is a protein from the bone and skin of deer. The base material is "Washi" or “Silk". There are many works made by Japanese paper these days.
