Collection: Tokyo Pointillism & People

These vibrant, colorful paintings reproduce the experiences of people going about their everyday lives in Tokyo, Japan. Look closer, and you will notice that the people are seen from behind in all but one. We cannot see their faces. This is because all were wearing masks due to the COVID period.

Painting Style
The technique, Pointillism, was developed by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in 1886, branching from Impressionism, using dots of color to depict the light and movement of the subjects captured in each of these urban scenes.

Print Type
I chose Gelato's beautiful wood prints for this collection. The grain comes through, giving the paintings a rustic and organic look that is also modern and chic. Each has clean edges, meaning the prints are to the edge. They come with a mounting kit. The wood is FSC-certified wood (when not available, PEFC or equivalent will be used).
