Takamune Ishiguro

To draw a picture is to express my self. The motif of my work comes from 'Nature' - vitality created from nature, hue, shape, air, smell, etc. It is not the motif created systematically, but the motif created naturally that is put on my canvas not directly but through the filter of 'myself'.  Etching has many attractive expressions such as lines or areas caused by corrosion and unplanned occurrences.  A completed work is a mirror of myself. Takamune received his BA at Meisei University, Tokyo, Japan, studying with Prof. Katsuro Yoshida.  At The Art Students League he studied with Michael  Pellettieri, Sylvie Germain-Covey & Bill Behnken.  Takamune has worked as Assistant Instructor at the Institute of Modern Printing in Sannohe, Aomori, Japan, & at the Kathy Caraccio Printing Studio.  His work has been shown internationally in both solo and group exhibitions and is in the collections of The New York Public Library, NYC; Williamsburg Art Historical Center, NYC; & Sannohe City Town Hall, Aomori, Japan.
