Ramen noodle vegetable, mixed media with collage on wood board, 20”x20″


1 in stock


This is my original design and painting. Also is one of my art experiments.
This artwork combines collage, acrylic and oil painting. The base is a 20″ by 20″ cradled wood board. All 4 sides has been painted black and polished with wax. The bottom layer is Japanese sumi paper (rice paper) collage. The paper is actually antique Japanese handwritten letters. I bought them from a seller in Japan. On top of that is acrylic underpainting. Then oil painting layers. I want the kanji on the letter to show through so it has this Japanese indication underneath.
As to the subject, I love ramen noodles. :D. I believe you can find ramen noodles all over the world and in all kinds of movies, comics and animations. The idea is to make it as pretty as a washi paper. Not realistic, but close to the Japanese Yuzen style art.
There are four pieces in this series, beef, chicken, shrimp and vegetable. I install hanging hardware on the back. You can also find certificate of authenticity in the envelope.
It takes a while to build up all these layers. I put a layer diagram so you have a general idea what is going on there.
I hope you enjoy this series. And please feel free to contact me with any question.
Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
