IDEAS ON A NAPKIN

Akira Yamaguchi

For ideas on a napkin, ArtAsiaPacific invites an artist to sketch and send a fresh, quick thought. All images and text are copyright the artist and ArtAsiaPacific.

Born in Tokyo in 1969, Akira Yamaguchi makes work that applies classical Japanese painting techniques to portray contemporary themes and subjects, a style known as Neo-Nihonga (“New Japanese-style”). Currently he is participating in the 17th Biennale of Sydney. Later in the year, Yamaguchi will have a solo exhibition at Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo.
