Commentary on the artist
Seisen Ito is relaying a perpetual vision, like a resurgent painter for Ukiyoe prints, as a catalyst to encourage and foresee the beginning of pulsation of the heaven, the earth and the god (man) of a new era and an art initiator toward transformation in this age when we human beings are forced to purify and change ourselves.
He is the Japanese artist, I would say, who can conjure up the empathy and the sense of beauty we retain in the depth of our DNA, and provoke what is half forgotten that still remains in the mentality of us, modern people.
