Artist of the moment……Kiyoshi Nakagami…..

Here is brief clip from a show featuring the artist.

Nakagami was born in Shizuka, Japan in the year 1949.

He uses various mediums besides oil and acrylic paint such as sand and mineral pigments and chinese ink.

At the moment the artist lives and works in Kanagawa, Japan.

On line and land based gallery: Galerie Richard in New York City, New York and Paris, France.

Had his first exhibition in 1971.

In most cases he doesn’t title his paintings, he is after a sense of emotion and finds it easier for the viewer to relate to the paintings if they are untitled.

With the paintings of his style, Eastern in origin, he is trying to capture a sense of atmosphere. The emphasis isn’t with drawing a line or recreating a house, its with the process and the pigments and inks that are used. His clouds are amazing and full of movement. I get a real sense of atmosphere when looking at his works. As we now have a robot on Mars, his paitings take me to imaginery or far off worlds. His process of making art is very abstract and real at the same time.

I wasn’t able to find a complete biography on the artist but I sure enjoy his art!
