This is one from my Eiheiji Temple series (read related post).
Streetscapes like this are surely my favorite genre. In my paintings I like telling stories of ordinary people. It is ever so intriguing for me to depict their lives in the context of a streetscape. Is it merely recording a tiny piece of history of our time in a particular place? I'd like to think there's more than that when I see beauty, or rather the integrity of the humanity, in something banal or even vulnerable.
