Mitsushige Nishiwaki
Exhibition - From TOKYO– It’s a beautiful day in {PARIS NEW YORK LONDON}. Derived from street scenes of Paris, New York and London, Mitsushige Nishiwaki’s spirited etchings are characterized by their seemingly naive, innocent, daydream-like sincerity. His etching technique is textured and bold, yet the art has a delicate and whimsical facility about them. Populated by his imagined personalities, the buildings and streetscapes he depicts are familiar to our experiences and senses. Each etching is a narrative that conjures up a singular place where we have been before. Roofscapes become outward expressions of the lives and activities from within. In some of the artwork, scale relationships are distorted, creating juxtaposing in the composition. This magnifies the story that is being told. Nishiwaki turns urban fabric into a living entity that always engages and reminds us of the familiar. Beginning in 2009, and self taught in intaglio, Mitsushige Nishiwaki’s etchings are on copper, and for highlighted color, on plastic. He uses German Hahnemuhle paper and Charbonnel etching ink. His larger works are made up of a series of abutting small print plate sizes, providing a visible armature for the artwork. Nishiwaki is a graduate of Hosei University in Tokyo and received a graduate degree in graphic design while studying in Arizona. He works as an artist and graphic designer in Tokyo. His artwork has been exhibited in Japan, France, England and the United States.
