Shigeki Kuroda

For many years Shigeki Kuroda worked hard to develop his own style and to perfect it for his needs. From a technical point of view it is a mix of aquatints, drypoints and etchings, that he further developed using watercolors, pencil and Sumi-Indian ink. This variety of print materials allowed the artist to overcome contemporary artistic challenges, for example movement, specific light or spacial abstraction.

The prints from Shigeki Kuroda limit themselves to few sparingly applied colors. He only seldom uses colorful and bright accents. Otherwise the graphical element dominates, not the color, and the fine and detailed picture captivates.
