Statement

Hiroaki Furukawa is a Japanese mixed media colored pencil artist. He was born in 1980, and now lives in Tokyo. He draws over layers of different materials as a background. Highlighter, blushpen, crayon, pastel, aqyla, etc. After that he uses colored pencils. He gives them a role in each sense you feel from imaging a motif ; like highlighter as stroke of hearing, blushpen as stroke of smell, etc. In his younger days, he found that the sense of touch is one of the biggest points of painting. Developing further, he tried using every 5 senses as an effect to make an art that can come near the truth. One more speciality of his work is colors. Since he used to live in the U.S.A in the childhood from 5 to 10, he has a color sense that is vivid and bright, also hybrid with Japanese delicate tone control. The first influence of art was when he started it at the age of 15, seeing an artbook of Odilon Redon. What he aims at making art by these specialities is to express what he wants to tell that can not be in words. A feeling that includes brightness and darkness, beauty and dirt, etc., everything together as one history of human nature.
