Jun Tsunoda - Sound And Vision

Publisher Torch Press

ISBN 9784907562106

Idea Code 17291

This book gathers drawings produced over the past 20 years by Tokyo-based artist Jun Tsunoda. Departing from the colourful abstract paintings, here the artist creates works using letters and script, blending the attributes of various characters. The drawings reflect a sense of handwritten immediacy, an approach that replaces the “letter” with freely expressive gestures. Tsunoda draws words related to poets such as Fernando Pessoa, Emily Dickinson, Matsuo Basho, and Taneda Santoka in a clear tribute to calligraphy, Arabic script, graffiti culture, music, and more. Transcending cultures and adopting various styles, it is suggestive of a genre between typography and painting.
