in the UK, we don’t say “I dislike you” we take people’s ice cream’s out of the freezer to make room for our own on a hot summer’s day and I think that’s horrible

Artist of the Week

Toshihiko Ikeda

Toshihiko is our wonderful artist in residence here at ELP. He has been with us for just over 6 months and is here until December. So half way through, it’s about time we had a look at what he’s been up to.

Toshihiko graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts in 2000. Since then has been heavily involved in printmaking and has won several awards including a scholarship from the Japanese government to further his artist practice overseas. 

His specialist area is etching on copper. The drawings are extremely detailed and he draws the tonal areas of his plates dot by dot. He works delicately with magnifying glass in one hand and a hand made Swiss etching needle (of which he has a multitude of shapes and sizes).

The end result is certainly worth his dedication and patience. The work is grotesque in subject but so beautifully executed as you can see for yourself.

A pure joy and an inspiration in the studio, it’s a privilege to have Toshihiko working at ELP!

It’s a Day of the Dead UFO sombrero mariachi band raining color down on an unsuspecting Don Juan astride a unicorn while a rabbit looks on.  And for some reason Frida Kahlo is in the mariachi band with a tennis racket.  Oh, and it’s all done by a guy named Sergio Mora.  http://sergiomora.com/bio/
