SOUSKE ONOIKE is an artist who with his paintings give us a little bit of glamour and essence of his native earth, Japan. Through a black precise but sinuous sign, female figures of delicate and refined beauty take shape, wrapped in the traditional kimono.
The feminine fascination power is used not in mischievous or instigating way, but as symbol of a fine and chaste sensuality; of a beauty almost whispered, which we can behold implicitly in little gestures and elegant poses, in the sweet and shy glances, in the delicacy of the chromatic harmonies.
