Yakumo Koizumi

(小泉 八雲)

Acrylic on canvas

40cm x 125cm

The artwork is mainly inspired by the life of Yakumo Koizumi (小泉 八 雲) / Lafcadio Hearn and the film Kwaidan. It depicts the quest for a place with all the difficulties entailed, and the inner awakening to find an identity (which he always looked for during all his travels) until the inner peace became true in Japan, where he died with the name Koizumi Yakumo.

Painting awarded 2019 by the International Art Exchange Exhibition Kobe, Japan.
