Mitsuo Shiraishi, “The Woods Between”, Etching and Aquatint on Paper
Born in 1969, Mitsou Shiraishi lives and works in Mulhouse, France. After graduating from college in Japan, he studied fine art in France at “Les Beaux Arts” in Lyon and Mulhouse. Shiraishi also received guidance at the Rémy Bucciali studio in Colmar, which gave him the necessary experience to start as a graphic artist and with etchings.
Today, he is a highly qualified printmaker, and collaborates with various international artists. Since 1994 he has also had a large number of exhibitions at biennials and galleries around the world.
Mitsuo Shiraishi’s motifs are characterized by Japanese art history and background, with sober colors and a narrative of small objects in an open landscape where perspective is often absent.
