1000: Summer fireworks (Yoshida)

All the elements of a traditional festival (matsuri) are here - the fireworks, of course, but also the street sellers of various delicacies (including beer!), and lots of people in their summer wear. The scene is being watched by a guitarist, perched precariously on the window ledge.

Detail

(Note that the white frame is part of the puzzle.)

Born in Tokyo in 1963, the artist portrays nostalgic glimpses of the world of his childhood. In addition to being a prolific illustrator, he is a keen mountaineer in his spare time.

He paints in a distinctive pointilliste style: closely-packed blobs of bright colour. Yoshida is his family name - he does not seem to sign his pictures.
