Kyoto is a birth place of traditional arts, crafts and performances of Japan,
and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.
Here GTK'd like to introduce the monthly art highlights, museums, creators etc.

The works of Tatsuya ISHIODORI

Tatsuya Ishiodori (石踊 達哉), born in 1945, is a well-known artist who has established his original and modern way of Japanese painting using some traditional motif of Japanese painting such as flowers and birds. He also has been using a traditional pattern of Japanese painting, Seigaiha (青海波), waves in blue ocean.
His works are able to appreciated on the sliding doors on Kinkaku-ji Temple, Myoho-in Temple etc. and also used for the illustration of the famous novel, The Tale of Genji (rewritten by Jakucho Setouchi).
About 40 works including new works depicting the world after 3.11 (Tohoku disaster in 2011) are being displayed this time. You can enjoy his unique world of painting in a quiet and sophisticated museum located in the Shokoku-ji zen Temple Ground.
