Okamura (1958 students) has witnessed attention as early as early as it received the Yamaguchi Museum Award Excellence Award in his twenties. Its unique shaping is created by a unique method of overlaying the end of a crust with a gigantic cedar board burned in a burner, taking the shape of a motif with charcoal and engraving it in scales with a scraper . Okamura who acquired material feeling and a profound presence in conventional Japanese paintings due to these shaping acts was awarded the 2004 New Year 's Prize of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the 4th Higashiyama Kaii Memorial Nikkei Nihon Painting Awards, 2008 Year 18th MOA Okada Shigeyoshi Prize Awarded the MOA Museum Award and has been active as an acclaimed writer who is driving the contemporary art world.
It is imaginary creatures such as elephants and birds, huge fish, dragons and Buddha Luo, which are depicted on a panel of huge cedar boards folded into a folding screen, that form that makes you feel strange forgery is overwhelming It approaches those who watch with a sense of life. Okamura who creates such an image leads to the idea that art and religion exist at the point of contact between nature and human beings by treating experiences rooted in human activities and climate and sensations, so that the life force of nature and its form I am inspired by the rhythm of my life and focus on my work.
