Akinori Ohtsuka

Japanese artist Akinori Ohtsuka combines traditional Japanese techniques with extensive historical research to create spellbinding images of Japan’s history and mythology. The artist is especially interested in attributes of warrior culture: the dress and armor of Japan’s classical period. When Akinori was only ten years old, he became fascinated with historical documents, archival materials, as well as historical novels and games. Eventually, these interests inspired him to study Cultural Asset Preservation and to choose Japan’s cultural past as a subject of his painting.

In order to create paintings on historical themes, Akinori researches his themes extensively, meticulously paying attention to details of dress and armor. He carefully selects his tools and materials, painting with mineral colors mixed with hide glue, gold or silver leaf, and sumi ink. The artist skillfully uses traditional, very thin paper as his surface. He incorporates elements of classical painting and animation, hyperrealism and stylization to achieve truly stunning results. Akinori hopes to preserve the wealth of Japan’s traditions so that they won’t be lost in the modern age.
