RYOKU GA PLANT PAINTING shujiro murayama

Shujiro Murayama, Japan is a recipient of the Asialink exchange program (a partnership between Move Arts Japan Artist In Residence Program 2018 and BigCi, supported by Asialink and the Japan Foundation)

During the recent BigCi residency in Australia Shujiro drew pictures using plants he discovered walking in the Wollemi nature reserve – colors that he had never seen before. He combined charcoal from burnt trees with green tree leaves, using the painting method invented by him, called ‘Ryokuga’.
