SHINYA TAMAI

TAMAI's painting follows traditional Japanese painting techniques. The basis of the painting is Japanese paper, which is still produced in several regions. The painting uses the pigments: suihi and iwa-enogu, as well as gold and silver leaves and powder. The fixing agent is gelatin called nikawa.

The "Cloud" series is one of Ryosuke's flagship works. He has a charming expression that makes us smile as if he's holding a cloud above his head and pointing at his mouth. The smooth milky white texture is also distinctive. He skillfully manipulates the hard porcelain to fully express the softness of the clouds.

EKAMAKA

EKAMAKA uses the oil painting technique and uses canvases in various shapes. Soft colors and its theme is fantastic. She makes us travel and recognize the islands of Okinawa that she adores through her colors and her exotic characters.
