Hideyuki at Studio
Hideyuki Sobue, who lives and works in the Lake District, UK, graduated from Osaka University of Arts, Japan (awarded scholarship). His art practice is focused on painting and drawing, exploring how to derive the maximum technical and conceptual potential from those practices. Over the past 17 years Sobue has developed his original new brush hatching technique, using Japanese sumi ink and acrylic, which was inspired by the concept of disegno established in the Florentine Renaissance, combined with the ongoing study of neurology on a variety of themes. His aim is to create a platform bridging East and West, and our heritage and contemporary understanding, by means of drawing and painting through delving into the core meaning of human act of seeing.
