(ちなみに、昨日から山種美術館で『名樹散椿』限定公開始まりました。来月11日まで。奥村土牛の『城』も観れるらしい！) Gyoshū Hayami (速水 御舟 Hayami Gyoshū, August 2, 1894 – March 20, 1935) was the pseudonym of a Japanese painter in the Nihonga style, active during the Taishō and Shōwa eras.
All together to say goodbye to Gramps. Great memorial for him tonight with great speakers that was a reminder of what a hero really is. I was lucky enough to live with him for four months last summer while my grandmother recovered from a fall. Stories of gold mining in the Yukon, sailing to Hawaii as member of a lumber ship at age 14, being sent ashore with the Marines on Tinian island, translating and interpreting intelligence that saved thousands during that landing, leading the efforts to rebuild Japan post war as an attorney, building a world class collection of Japanese art that The Seattle Art Museum displayed before it traveled the country and Japan, and among many other honors receiving the Order of the Rising Sun bestowed by the Emperor of Japan. He was a philanthropist, scholar, mountaineer, marathoner, father, grandfather, and civic leader. In a time that the smallest pedestrian accomplishments are celebrated as heroic achievements he never mentioned any of his once. Ever. #family#hero#blakemorefoundation#universityofwashington#japan#navy#marines#nihonga#seattleartmuseum
“I do not wish to simply recreate and replicate objects or places, but rather, I hope to discover the unconscious and ambiguous connections that drew me in and inspired me to give these moments a physical and lasting form.” Start your Monday off by visiting stoveleg.com for more from Jamie Welch’s Nihonga collection.

Detail of my fav painting🦄 in the #Hamadaraka exhibit at #DieselArtGallery here in Tokyo. Hamadaraka are a Japanese painter duo consisting of twins @eruhamadaraka & @emuhamadaraka. Their beautiful Neonihonga style works are inspired by their senses, sampling elements from their everyday surroundings, dreams, enduring images in their minds and the resonance of words. The exhibit centers on the theme of 434Hz frequency. Throughout the 30 paintings and sculpture on display, a paradise of flora and fauna is awakened by the vibrations of a 434Hz frequency. Here, white horses and panthers emerge from the jungle in a writhing wave of shape and color. 🌊💗 More pics in my stories. 👍
絵和紙 -紅葉月- ／ Autumn leaves and full moon <#Ewashi Artwork>（2018）
先日からアップしているこの作品もこちらで完成です（ホーム画面から全3枚の完成図が見られます）。このインスタグラムを見てくださっている方の多くはご存知かもしれないのですが、作品タイトルにもなっている #絵和紙 というのは、私が作った造語です。日本画制作で素材を追求するなかで、自ら紙漉きを行い、また、紙漉きを行うなかで、1枚の和紙の濃淡（厚み）の差で絵や模様が浮かび上がらせる透かし和紙を独自につくりました。
Today I upload a final piece of this artwork. (This work consists of 3 pieces of photo. You can see the completion at home screen.) This artwork looks painting work but strictly speaking it is not a painting. It is mainly made of Japanese paper washi, and actually I make and use specialized one, #Ewashi .
Ewashi is a word coined by myself. E means picture in Japanese and washi is traditional Japanese (handmade) paper. Although washi has been normally one of the material for a long time, but I've originally arranged the material and pursued the level of painting arts.
By the way, this artwork was one of my first-challenged ewashi artworks. I would be happy if I upload here and wish you color autumn leaves in my work in your imagination.
