Art: Japanese beauty in Art Déco style by artist Ichiro Tsuruta (04)

While surfing this afternoon on internet I found these beautiful, elegant and colorful paintings from the Japanese visual artist Ichiro Tsuruta. I am really impressed about the beauty he is showing in his work. I wrote MORE BLOGS about his work. Be Inspired by his interesting artwork. 





More about the artist
Ichiro Tsuruta is a Japanese artist born in 1954 in the city of Hondo-shi (current Amakusa-shi), Kumamoto, Japan. He grew up surrounded by rich nature of the Kyushu's Amakusa region. He liked to paint since he was a young boy. He graduated from the department of Graphic Design at Tama Art College and worked on Western style and realistic style illustrations. He then became interested in the concept of beauty in Japanese tradition and Buddhist art. Ichiro's paintings are influenced by ‘Ukiyo-e’ the ancient Japanese paintings of young women such as ‘Utamaro’ and ‘Hokusai’. In fact the Japanese women he has created are the result of the perfect union of European Art Deco and Japanese sensibility. From the inner sense of Ichiro’s beauty are born his illustrations of women or muses, as he calls them. Here beauty, elegance and eroticism meet and interweave. Since 1987 Noevir, cosmetics company of Japan had adopted Tsuruta’s painting of imaginary beauties for their campaign for eleven years. Now he is working mainly as the painter of “Bijinga”, “Butsuga” (Buddhist art) and so on.
