Vinyl Artist Poll - Tenmyouya Hisashi

This is the fifth of ten artist profiles we're presenting as we lead up to our Vinyl Artist Poll in which we'll ask you to vote for the artist you'd most like to see work in vinyl. The poll is strictly for fun and to get a read on what you like art wise. Click on each of the paintings to read a description of the piece by the artist.

Tenmyouya Hisashi
www3.ocn.ne.jp/~tenmyoya/

Tenmyouya Hisashi was born in Tokyo in 1966, and currently lives in Saitama, Japan.  After initially working as an art director for a record company, he now makes his living painting.  He has shown steadily since his first show in 1990 at age 24, including shows  at the Whitney in New York and others in Tokyo, Berlin, London, Paris, Madrid, Kiev and Sao Paulo.

His deep knowledge of and respect for the ancient traditions of Japanese painting are apparent, but this respect is not mechanical – the work is supremely modern.
