Takuo Nakamura

Mr. Takuo Nakamura, artist of Kanazawa, was born as the second son of Nakamura Baizan in the second generation and trained ceramics under his father. His works develop contemporary decorative and figurative expression using the representative technique of Baizan (color drawing elephant) which puts color painting on the inlaid clay. His creation started from a vessel now becomes a modeled work with the minimum use of the vessel, arranging the design of Koetsu and Sotatsu of Rimpa in a contemporary context and directing a completely new decorative space. A solo exhibition was held in 2015, which fascinated many visitors.
