Jiro Miyata (Japan)

Comment

Ignatius Hermawan Tanzil / LeBoYe

Jiro Miyata works is nothing cutting edge and also conventional, but on the other hand it reflects a great value of life. It seems like these days everybody can paint very well and make it visually nice, but only a few paintings can actually give a strong feeling. In spite of that, Jiro Miyata works give very positive feeling as his landscape paintings give a clear and warm feeling. I believe that he paints with his hand passionately. His attention to detail, as well as his ability to capture simple things in life are something that most people are lacking nowadays.
