Wk 13 – Artist Interview – Shihori Nakayama

This week, I enjoyed the work of Shihori Nakayama and her piece, titled “Recapturing the Moment”.


In this work of art, Shihori Nakayama tries to replicate the art styles of children’s books, Japanese historical printing blocks, and manga all into a piece the works beautifully. Although many may claim that “art does not have to be beautiful”, this is an occasion that proves that art is allowed to be beautiful. Sometimes people want to look at something beautiful. It is simply human nature. We enjoy nature because of all of the vibrant colors, and we enjoy artwork like this because it allows us to remember that life itself is gorgeous.

I really enjoyed this piece, so I heavily thank the artist, Shihori Nakayama, for making it. I hope that she has a great career ahead of her, as the quality of her work is nothing to laugh at.
