MESSEGE FROM ARTIST
Although I am not well informed of Buddhist and/or Buddhism, I had been inspired by the simply drawn figures of "Hakubyouzuhou (`}@)". It's been said that the Buddhism is purity and it teaches mercy and charity. Therefore, a man who draws the figure of Buddhist must be pure-minded. It is very difficult for me to become pure-minded, especially, I am full of worldly desires. It also has been said that the Buddhist paintings are the forms of Buddhist figures sprung out and it should never be drawn by the artist's free spirit.
Still, my desire wanting to draw Buddhist figures did not disappeared.
As a graphic designer, I have used a various drawing tools, such as, pencils, charcoals, a painting brush, ruling pens, markers, etcc. And now, I am with this drawing tool of our time, computer mouse. I wondered if I were able to challenge "Tessen-byou (Sό`)" with this digital toolc.
I became enamored with Buddhist drawings and digital tools.
Comparing to the hand-drawn lines, I was afraid that the digitally created lines would become devoid of personality. However, I noticed that "Hakubyouzuhou (`}@)" practice is not just focused on thinness or fineness of the lines. Also the combination of rounded and angular lines creates complicated and sophisticated graphical figures. I became attracted by the mysteriousness of the complete image.
I draw the face
of the Buddhist image, a crown on a Buddhist sculpture
(V₯), heavenly garment (Vί), lotus seat (@Ψΐ), and convert into the vector
line graphic of the modern "Tessen-byou (Sό`)" style. I
draw and continue drawing by zooming into the deep details of the body.
The image of the Buddhist figures of my
own way was found from among the time of bliss of nothing but drawing.
