Punk-Samurai Spirits In Contemporary Painting

Punk-Samurai Spirits In Contemporary Painting
Guy Brighton
  • 15 june 2006


Pingmag has an interesting interview with contemporary Japanese Painter Hisashi Tenmyouya who they say is is a maverick in the world of traditional Japanese painting.

PingMag: Tenmyouya-san, your paintings have such amazing bold mixtures like those Samurai warriors for your FIFA poster in armour playing football! A shocking contrast almost!?

HT: Right. It may be a little appalling to see those combined in one picture, but hey! That’s the kind of world we live in Japan now: going to the temple and yet painting graffiti, inheriting traditional Japanese beauty, yet inserting elements from the present Japanese culture. I call this “NEO-Traditional Japanese Painting”.
