作田富幸 / Tomiyuki SAKUTA


I met Thomas at an artist residency for prints in Belgium called Frans Masereelcentrum (Flemish Centre for Graphic Arts). I admire the elegant, flowing etching style that he creates on a large zinc plate, as well as his character portrayals that go well beyond so called “portraits”.
