BIOGRAPHY
“Even though I paint animals, even though I paint flowers, I never forget human beings” –Daisuke Nakano

Nihonga style painter, Daisuke Nakano, uses an animated method of expression which makes his paintings look as if they would bleed when cut. He is precise, visionary, and patient, only producing a single painting a year, perfecting every line and capturing movement, he depicts a sense of time standing still.
Accurate down to the most minute detail, Nakano’s paintings dominate regardless of size.

Daisuke Nakano’s subject matter enabled him to explore a unique sense of space particular to that of Japanese fine arts. He also learned to appreciate traditional Japanese painting materials. Learning quickly from the world of Nihonga and drawing inspiration from using gold or silver leaf as a base – a method developed by Ito Jakuchu or the Rinpa Schoool- it wasn’t long before he started creating his own method of painting through filling the entire space with detail.

Through depicting the overwhelming power of nature and the climax of life, he expresses the changes of the natural world – its evanescence and sorrow – flowers in full bloom will eventually fall and return to the earth. This intoxication of paradox and life is found in the paintings of Daisuke Nakano.
