The Life And Work Of Kirie Artist Kubo Shu

Publisher Tankosha

ISBN 9784473042934

Idea Code 19465

Kirié is the Japanese art of paper cutting, and Shu Kubo is a self-taught master of the technique. Since discovering it while studying architecture at college, he has developed his own method of overlaying coloured paper to create multicoloured works that also incorporate pastels or acrylic paint. Part biography, part monograph, this book presents a large overview of works by Shu, in-depth explanations of his techniques, and many personal anecdotes about his widely varied sources of inspiration, from modern city views to Japanese scenes in nature. His pieces are characterised by texture, the dramatic use of perspective, and bold expressions of light and shadows.
