Lot Details

This lot consists of two works from the 47 Ronin Series, both in excellent condition painted in 1991, and measuring 6 x 8 inches, framed to larger dimensions.

Most disciplined and dedicated Japanese artist, Hisashi Otsuka, creates bold portraits, one of a seated warrior at rest and one of Oishi the General with short sward drawn, painted in a balance of traditional Eastern techniques with contemporary Western ideas. These indelible figures, saturated in color are placed upon a white background enhancing a moving aesthetic of grace and sensitivity to the subject, while bringing out a vitality and life to the ancient past.

Otsuak's paintings incite tensions from breaking from tradition, as he bypasses the pressure to conform to tradition and innovate a new spiritual presence of the modern Japanese woman holding traditional values. In this way the artists initiates a new form of representation that values multiple perspectives. The artist has studied in Zen and martial arts, which has fostered his style of art, believing that the process of art and life are one. He has held solo and group exhibitions internationally in Hawaii, New York, London, Paris, San Francisco, and Tokyo, and his works can be found in private collections world-wide.
