Hisashi Tenmyouya

Born in Tokyo, Japan, 1966. After working as art director at a record label, became an artist. He advocates a new style of traditional Japanese painting “Neo Nihonga”, and in 2000 started a new movement called “Butoha” to fight the authoritarian art world with painting. Exhibitions include “Kawanabe Kyosai and Tenmyouya Hisashi Exhibition” Kawanabe Kyosai Memorial Museum, Saitama, Japan (2002), “MOT Annual” Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2006) 17th Sidney Triennale (2010) etc. In 2010 he proposed a new Japanese art scheme named “BASARA” which is extravagant and extraordinary and embodies a Samurai aesthetic like “Basara” in Nanboku dynasty era and “Kabuki-mono” at the end of Sengoku era.
