Takuma Kaneko

Takuma Kaneko
Takuma Kaneko is a Japanese artist who studied art in the U.S. and Europe.

As far as I can tell from the brief bio on his website, he is living and working in Japan, though most of the landscapes in his website gallery are of European scenes.

Kaneko’s landscapes are bright, painterly and immediate, with an enjoyable play of light and shadow. You will also find figurative work and still life subjects in his gallery.

Note that additional pages of landscape images can be accessed from the linked numbers under the “Recent Landscapes” header at the top of the main gallery page.

Kaneko also maintains a blog, on which he posts work in progress and location photos. The blog is in Japanese, but there are two strings of characters at the very bottom of each page, the right hand one of which is a link to earlier posts.

Kaneko was a Landscape Category Finalist in the 2011-2012 Art Renewal Center Salon, and there is a high-res image of the painting above, bottom on the ARC site.
