Souske Onoike is a contemporary Japanese artist with an impressive constellation of international exhibitions in cities as far-flung as Tokyo, Paris and Milan. As a painter, he considers beautiful things to be amongst the world’s best treasures and thus, dedicates himself to capturing the transcendent beauty so highly regarded in Japanese culture. One of his recurring motifs is the bijin, a beautiful, traditionally dressed woman. Through sensual colors and line-work, Onoike masterfully depicts subtle details such as the fragility of a flower and the wistfulness within a glance. While the painter’s work pays direct homage to cultural traditions, his foremost aim remains creating fashionable paintings that remain in step with Japanese modern life.
