Toshiyuki Enoki, 1961

Educated in several different genres of lacquer painting, traditional Japanese painting and western painting, Toshiyuki Enoki's works are an amalgamation of the new and aged, reality and myth.
This artist strives to antiquate his works, not only in his thematic tribute to well known traditional artists such as Maruyama Oukyou also in his artist process.
Using particularly worn brushes, Enoki cyclically paints, erases and transfers images for his works to create a unique atmospheric depiction of Nature.
As with all four pieces, the details brushstrokes and overall reflective surface is reminiscent of lacquer works which served as an inspiration for the artist.
His selected warm colour palette and scattered gold leaf across his canvas creates an overall magical and tranquil depiction in these four featured paintings.

Since 2008, he participates Kan-Hikari Expo in Kyoto, and installs his works at the International heritage sites like Jochi Temple, Senyu Temple and Nijo Castle.
He also participated the 21st Century Exhibition Of Japanese Art from 2010-2012 while doing solo shows throughout the Japan. He was also invited to Fu-Ku Project in Iwami in 2015 at Hamada City Sekisho Museum.
