Artist: Rikki Kasso
Title: 'Modern Davido'
Size: 150h x 200w x 4d cm
Media: Sumi Ink on Canvas. This work is painted on canvas with a floating Black American style box frame surrounding the work.
Perhaps the greatest mark that Japanese culture made upon Kasso’s work was his discovery and appropriation of traditional Japanese Sumi ink and brush stroke techniques. Sumi ink is created using a method which has changed little over the last 2,000 years and its history is deeply rooted in Zen Buddhism. Kasso fuses the western style of impressionist painting with the delicate accuracy of an asian calligrapher in a unique and contemporary adaptation.
