Which art has been the most important to you and what do you do with it?


The following piece of art has taken my mind off my work, or maybe I’m just a bit more sensitive to the subtle, almost invisible details. 

I recently had the pleasure of photographing street fighter artist, Ryohei Kawamura, and we’ve shared his work on our Instagram and Facebook pages, but what makes this piece so important to me is how it is both an art installation and a reflection on the city’s history and future.

When Ryohi Kawamura started designing and creating street fighters, he was influenced by the works of Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, and he began experimenting with an entirely new style.

Kawamura wanted to capture the dynamic, violent and chaotic nature of the street fights and the brutal nature of fighting in Japan in the 70s and 80s.

The art piece depicts an old Japanese house that has been transformed into a fighting arena. 

Kawamura is known for his street fighters and for his distinctive, colorful, and evocative designs. 

I love that he is taking his art seriously, even if it is not the most obvious, bold or exciting piece of artwork in the world.

I also love how he has taken this piece and turned it into a living, breathing work of art.

The images in the street fighter art sculpture show two fighters, both with their backs to the viewer, fighting on a wooden board and each other.

The two fighters are fighting on different levels.

One is the ground, the other on top of a raised platform, a platform that rises from the ground.

Both fighters are on the ground as they engage in an aerial duel. 

As Kawamura explains in the installation, the images in this sculpture show both fighters engaging in a violent and destructive aerial combat. 

The art piece also contains a detailed description of how the two fighters fight.

Kawasaki uses a special, stylized brush that mimics the look of the art of the Japanese painter Akira Kurosa and artist Yasujirō Ozu.

The artist’s signature brush is the brush he would use for his painting of swords in the manga and anime Akira Kurokawa.

Kawamara says, “This brush is a real Japanese sword that is often used in martial arts in Japanese culture, and is used for the fighting style called Taikutsu.” 

The two fighters in this illustration are clearly separated in space. 

While it is hard to see through the artist’s hand, Kawamura says, The camera is a little bit off in the center of the canvas.

This distance is for the camera to see the two fighter, and to capture what happens when the camera is placed on the same level as the two. 

When it comes to Kawamura’s art, it is important to make sure that the viewer is focused on the artist and the artwork.

The viewer must be able to see what Kawamura is doing, even when the artwork itself is moving around in space, and be able hear what Kawasaki is saying. 

In the case of this art piece, I love how Kawamura has chosen to keep the viewer in the background.

The space in the artwork is not really a focal point of the artwork, and the viewer can still focus on the artwork and the fighters.

While the images are abstract, I do think it is extremely important to know how these images are made and how they are perceived by the viewer. 

For instance, the artist has made sure to place the two combatants on the top of the wooden board that is also the platform that is raised from the base of the building.

Kawamats intention was to make the viewer feel the tension of the two fighting on top, which was also the reason for using a stylized Japanese sword.

In this way, Kawamato is able to show that the artist is drawing from the perspective of both the viewer and the artist.

The viewers eye can focus on a very sharp detail of the fighters back and see the details of the weapon that they are holding.

The fact that the artists eye is not on the fighter, the way the artist places the weapon on the wooden platform, is also a very subtle, subtle detail. 

After Kawamura had made these images, he used a brush to apply the paint to the canvas, which created a subtle, but powerful, effect.

The painting has been a real delight to me.

I have been captivated by Kawamuras art ever since he began creating the artwork for the street fighters installation, and I hope to share more pieces of his art soon.

I hope that my readers appreciate and appreciate Kawamames work, and share it with their friends.
