poster for Akiko Shinoda "YAMAONI Works"

This event has ended.

When she was a student, she drew some oil paintings. But she gradually started to think a oil painting was a endless work, and they were not suitable for her. And she gave up oils and she had choose litho. A lithograph is a almost complete picture, she thinks. While in school, she met Woodcut Lithograph that had invented by Seishi Ozaku. She thoughts this method was fitted with her art style. Woodcut Lithograph, differed from typical lithography, create to good mood by beautiful grain even if drawings are simple, Spots and touch by tusche is soft, that’s a reason why she likes it. The theme of her art is assembled from things or impression in her childhood, for example, some books about the **“ Yokai ”- She has often read before, some ideas which are derived from scenery, plants, animals, and novels. She likes “ Yokai “, especially the “ Yamaoni “ , it widely appear in her works. She wishes that viewers of these works feel personality, humor, a sensee of nostalgia , and narrativity, sympathetically.
