Jun Ogata

About The Work
These new paintings from Jun Ogata are based on Japanese gardens that he has visited and photographed throughout Japan. You will notice the delicate Japanese traditional natural colors including the color of flower petals, reflections in a pond, and the leaves turning colors in these paintings. Jun cites Japanese and European traditional painters and "Sakuteiki", the oldest book on Japanese gardening, as very strong influences on his work. Jun's paintings give us a feeling of peace, relaxation and beauty.
