Yasushi Ikejiri

Born in 1971 in Hokkaido, Japan Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan

Yasushi Ikejiri is a contemporary expressionist influenced by a wide range of landscape painters including Edward Hopper, Peter Doig, and 19th Century Russian masters. Ikejiri draws on mundane scene of everyday life in Tokyo to craft works full of astonishing detail and saturated color. His paintings are in refreshing contrast to the current art market where techniques are overlooked by attention-getting subjects. Ikejiri’s painstaking style and modest choice of subject matter reminds us of the pure, celebratory joy found in landscape paintings.
