Artists who can draw beautiful gradations are hard to find in this world, right?
The true beauty of Minako Ishikawa's work is that the lines are drawn with a single thin acrylic stroke, which is arranged among thousands while subtly changing the color scheme. It is not unusual for her to continue drawing a thin line with the same thickness in a straight line without it thickening left and right.It is surely what God makes.
If you think that she paints her work with the colors of the rainbow on a transparent acrylic board, she will change it freely, like drawing with blue on a white canvas, and will attract viewers with her gradations. According to Ishikawa, this work is a work that extracts the "light" that fills the air. In addition, Minako Ishikawa's works feel crafty, beautiful and refreshing without being disturbing, giving us a feeling of openness that you will never get bored of even if you look at it many times.
It seems that she has been able to earn high praise on international stage by holding exhibitions in Taiwan several times since two years ago. Despite being time consuming work, her work is highly popular because it is still being sold at a relatively affordable price, so it is advisable to purchase it now.
She is one of the artists gathering attention who will grow even more in the future.
