Artist of whirls.

The concept of “Rimpa” has gone beyond the narrow and closed framework of the Japanese art history since the beginning of the 21st century and is now shared across the world. It is probably a synonym of “Mannerism” as  Tatsuhiko  Shibusawa  once declared. The works of Ugetsu, artist of whirls, belong to the lineage of “unfinished Rimpa”, dating back to Ogata Korin’s search for irregular currents and whirls in his White Plum Blossoms.
