Misawa Atsuhiko

About Artist: he sculptor, Misawa Atsuhiko was born in Kyoto in 1961. Since 2000, he has been creating the wooden life-sized sculptures of animals which are mainly made from camphor tree. The colorful, chiseled works have a simply overwhelming presence that has been recognized by Japan's highest sculpting award.Using paint, watercolour, crayon and pencil, Misawa Atsuhiko depicts scores of animals in childlike, honest renderings. From cats and dogs to a variety of more exotic beasts (unicorns included), the figures are set against neutral backgrounds, often seemingly drawn on scraps of whatever happens to be lying around at the time, from pieces of cardboard to letter envelopes and weary scraps of paper. Squirrels, owls, lizards, zebras, leopards, bears and an entire menagerie of happy animals come alive with bold colours, sharp lines, chaotic scribbles and expressive swathes of thick paint.
