Welcome to Neo-Japonism Atelier

I create Neo-Japonism style of Art - uniting the essence of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and various form of Japonisme influenced modern paintings.

My works are unique and original - inspired by a warm nostalgia feeling, Ukiyoe & floating world, Haiku & classic calligraphy, Japonisme influenced art, Art Nouveau & Art Déco styles, antique Kimono, art of Taisho Romanticism(1910-20's style), and modern-pop art of Japan in 60-70's.
I love to work with natural materials, Sumi ink, Washi papers, colors, Antique Kimono fabrics.

My passion is to discover a continuity of time and spiritual existence in the form of ’Neo-Japonism’ - a new form of style conveying the sense of Japanese aesthetics.

Thank you for your visit!

Thank you visiting my atelier shop!
Please feel free to contact me any question or comment.
I've be happy to hear from you!
Here in my atelier shop, I list mainly my Neo-Japonism art works.

As a trained calligrapher and Sumie artist, I passionately love to discover a continuity of time and spiritual existence and develop what I refer to as the ’Neo-Japonism’ - a new form of style depicting and conveying the sense of Japanese aesthetics. I found a new way of fusing my trained calligraphy and Sumie skills with Japonisme influenced paintings, and also of developing a fresh unity of traditional and contemporary art forms.

♧Painted Poem series
One of the first and most representative works of my Neo-Japonism style. It is distinguished by its unified harmony which strives to create a warm nostalgia. Original poems are composed into a calligraphic design form and made to flow with rich colours, patterns and an atmospheric spirit.

One of my dynamic collection of works - inspired by my desire to develop and rediscover a pure, direct, unfalsified form of calligraphic art - influenced by a Zen aesthetic imperfection. It often reflects an expression of infinite energy and spiritual concentration.

The inspiration for my work is everyday life’s living words and letters, as well as living colours, lines, patterns and shapes – I will never get bored with how they communicate with each other and how they create a new form of endless impression.
For original works, I mainly use Japanese ink and gouache. I love the infinite possibilities of natural Sumi ink. I also find that the balance and contrast between the black ink and the rich quality of Gouache is soothing and refreshing.

All my art works are painted and calligraphy-ed and Giclee art prints are printed here at my atelier. I hand finish everything with sensitive care and love for all of you out there to have a great moment of pleasure and happiness.

Additional policies and FAQs
♤I'm happy to work with commissioned orders and projects and also wholesale or consignment orders.

♤A note on art works :
All original Neo-Japonism art works and all original calligraphy works are painted and done by me. All poems are purely original.

♤A note on Giclee art prints :
All my art prints are high quality Giclee print.
I always use the professional DIA print image because it is simply better quality as Fine Art prints. My original art works are all photographed by my trusted professional photographer as soon as I finish with a new collection.
And I have to note that I do not do any extra Photoshop job in order to change the data.

♤A note on Colour!
Please keep in mind that the previews of my art that you see in my shop would probably appear slightly different in colour according to your monitor and its set-up. And they are certainly much brighter and livelier on print. I take my time and a pleasure in assuring beautiful colours in every art print. 
More beautiful in real life!

♤For customers via exhibitions, art fairs and galleries.
Fine art prints ( in 8.5"x11" ) of most of my Neo-Japonism art works are available on request. ( $38.00-$68.00)
If you are interested – please send me a mail and I will happily make a special listing for you on my shop.
