Couple
after Torii Kiyonaga

Original set named Sode no maki (Handscroll for the Sleeve) featured 12 pillar prints that, when bind together, could be rolled in a scroll and held in a sleeve.

I have selected 3 views trying to tell a story of one couple at the time. Firstly, we see them as young lovers, then, as lovers sexually experimenting, and finally, as mature lovers/parents because a woman in the third frame is pregnant.

100 Views of Ukiyo-e

During my exploration of the beginning of modern art (Impressionism and Post-Impressionism) I found myself surrounded by beautiful views of Ukiyo-e prints. They were my explanation to everything: modern/contemporary painting, design, illustration, comics and animation. Even more, I had to tell that to everyone. Firstly, I did impressions/interpretations of famous works of Hiroshige and Hokusai, but I couldn´t stop there… I finally found my call.100 Views of Ukiyo-e is my life mission to re-create new originals of selected 100 Ukiyo-e prints, new original painting in new oban size. It is divided in 4 Volumes of 25 canvases, some of the forming diptychs or triptychs. So far I have finished the first set that introduces several masters, styles and topics.
