ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
Starting next Monday, June 27th, Art for Thought will showcase over 30 exquisite pieces by artist Kei Watanabe, who hails from Australia. His artwork depicts nature in a series of etchings and silk screen prints, inspired by his conversations with nature during his over 20 years abroad in different cultures and environments. These prints are made using the "collagraph" technique, where various materials are layered onto a printing plate, and traditional Japanese paper is used to create a unique texture, reminiscent of a distant era.
The exhibition, titled "Whispers of the Universe," is a must-see for art enthusiasts seeking a touch of nature in their art experience. Kei Watanabe is an award-winning artist whose work has been displayed in solo and group exhibitions across Australia and internationally, and we are proud to feature him at Art for Thought.
