In the Studio: The Process of a Painting with Jave Gakumei Yoshimoto

Jave Gakumei Yoshimoto’s (NAP #99 & 102) recent work "Baptism of Concrete Estuary" was massive in size and massively received.

After the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Yoshimoto began working on a scroll painting to highlight the destruction and devastation the country faced.  What began as a small endeavor, however, grew to be a 30 foot long scroll painting that also acted as a fundraiser for building an art center in Japan in the wake of nature’s destruction.
