The Essence of Japanese Aesthetics

At the core of Japanese art lies a deep appreciation for nature and simplicity. This is vividly captured in pieces like Fuji’s Truth and The Great Wave Off Kanagawa – Limited Edition Minimalist Art Print, where the delicate balance between form, colour, and space reflects the minimalist ethos that is central to Japanese design principles.

All our prints are limited. So you will have the opportunity to own a unique piece while making your home shine.

Contemporary Influences and Pop Culture

In recent years, Japanese art has seen a surge in global popularity, thanks in part to its influence on and from pop culture. No Path and The Oni exemplify how contemporary artists are drawing from traditional themes and techniques to create works that speak to the modern soul, blending historical elements with current trends.

Scars, for example, is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of kintsugi, this captivating artwork encapsulates the essence of embracing imperfections and finding beauty in the process of healing.

Kintsugi is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold, which permeates the painting. It symbolizes the belief that scars and flaws tell stories of endurance, transformation, and strength. Enveloping the artwork is the Japanese proverb “七転び八起き” (nana korobi ya oki), which translates to “Fall seven times, get up eight.” This widely recognized and inspiring phrase resonates across cultures, urging us to persevere even in the face of adversity. It serves as a timeless reminder to embrace setbacks as stepping stones to success, encouraging us to rise stronger with each fall.
