THE SUBLIME ART OF TOSHIAKI KATO

Toshiaki Kato is a Japanese artist whose sublime artwork features a breath-taking amount of detail, colour and texture.He appears to draw a large part of his inspiration from the works of Shakespeare, fairy tales, the notorious ‘femme-fatale’ and even iconic figures from history, specifically Joan Of Arc.The beautifully-realised artwork above is his take on Franco Zeferelli’s 1968 film version of ‘Romeo And Juliet’; of personal interest to me is the high-fashion element he brings to his art which is in evidence throughout and especially in this painting.
