1000: Scarlet declaration (Tsuruta)

Wow - a Tsuruta classic! Such elegance from such a simple collection of lines... this is not an easy puzzle: there are only four colours, white, black, red, and pale flesh, for almost all of the pieces.


Born in 1954, Ichiro Tsuruta grew up in the lush natural surroundings of Kumamoto (Kyushu). He attended Tama Art University in Tokyo, and after a period of Western-influenced realism, began to develop his own distinctive style - his portraits of women combine elements from Japanese art with inspiration from Art Deco. His place as a leading commercial artist was confirmed by the success of his advertising images for Noevir cosmetics in 1987.

He signs his art "Ichiro T", emphasising his given name, as is traditional, but writing in Roman letters.
