Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
- Henri Rousseau

Tadahiro Uesugi

Posted by Charley Parker at 7:17 am

Tadahiro Uesugi I’m not always fond of minimalist illustration. Too often artists will pare down their approach to the point where it loses visual interest.

Not so with Tadahiro Uesugi. Areas that others might leave flat and lifeless, Uesugi makes alive with beautiful patterns and wonderful textures. His superb design sense, refined control of color and playful use of light and shadow make his images a visual treat.

Uesugi was part of a recent three-person show called Three Trees Make a Forest at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA, along with Enrico Casarosa and Ronnie Del Carmen. Some of the works from the show are on view in an online gallery.

His own site features extensive galleries, some Quicktime movies and hand-drawn Quicktime VR panoramas.

    Simplicity of everyday life, capture from a point of view and transform into a drawing, result in a simple meaningful picture that give the viewer a pleasant or meaningful idea of the world.

    I really enjoy your work! 2003-2005
    Can’t wait to see your new drawings from everyday life…!
