Every once and awhile an artist breaks the mold… like literally smashes it on the ground. That’s Hiroshi Senju. He’s a world renowned artist based out of New York whose specialty is waterfalls. More specifically, waterfalls painted in the ancient tradition of nihonga – it means painting with naturally found or made colors.
Breaking from his traditional forum, Senju has created a new series called ‘Nightfall’ that literally fights against the dark. Using acrylic and fluorescent pigments these waterfalls glow in the dark, bringing to light a scene of enigmatic poise and subdued energy.
