The paintings of Kazuyuki FUTAGAWA are full of profound spirituality. Transcend reality and sublimate it into a beautiful and dazzling spiritual landscape. In recent years, he has published works of realistic characters created in ink shades that have opened up a new realm, bringing viewers deeper amazement. The representative work of his new attempt, “A Few Seconds’ Gestures” had received the Excellence Award at “Sompo Japan FACE Exhibition” in 2013.

In this exhibition, he realizes the symbiosis between the inner landscape that comes to the human mind and the real nature. Please enjoy the sustainable new phase of Futagawa's art.




Born in 1954 in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, Kazuyuki Futagawa studied at and graduated from Kanazawa College of Art. He then completed his master’s degree at the Department of Japanese Painting at Tokyo University of the Arts. Yakushima Island is known for its humid and mossy forest of magnificent trees. Majestic, untouched natural beauty, which is beyond the control of human beings, has existed there since pre- historic times. For the first time as an artist, Futagawa stepped into the deep forest of Yakushima. He carefully observes mossy tree roots and leaves on branch tips and re- produces them with skillful brush strokes. His paintings reflect the way he looks at great nature in endless awe, along with his deep spirituality.

His works extend far beyond realism and are transformed into even more beautiful, splendid imaginary scenes. Recently Futagawa presented a series of realistic portraits painted in a gradation of Chinese ink, which further surprised and impressed the viewers.
