Cover illustration by Sakuan Izumi
Released in January of 2013, ARTas1® Volume 4 continues to introduce some of the very best and cutting-edge Japanese artists. Featuring art that appeals to fine art collectors, fans of anime, and everyone in between; Vol. 4 beautifully reproduces new art from returning favorites as well as fresh artists whose works are seen here for the first time outside of Japan.
Readers will appreciate detailed information on each artist's awards, clients, biographies and contact information. However, the 2 to 4 pages of artwork by each artist is the real focus. Between Masahito Yamada's vivid etched paintings on metal, Takahiro Kimura's beautiful/disturbing collages or Takashi Sekiguchi's political posters, everyone will find artists to be intrigued by.
41 Japanese Artists. Mediums from oil on canvas to airbrush on metal, traditional cut paper, sumi, pen & ink, acrylics & pastels, 3DCG, weaving, photography and more. 164 pages of joy and inspiration for art lovers.
