ArtRetro Modern: Artist Hiroshi Tanabe

Artist Hiroshi Tanabe combines a retro sense of color and style with meticulous line-work inspired by the traditional woodcut techniques of his native Japan. Punch-colored scenes of women in profile, as well as waves of dragonflies, dancers, and ribbons, exist on flat backgrounds that set the scene for fine waves of hair, and intricate fabric illustration. Tanabe’s career has already spanned two decades, popping up everywhere from Vogue Paris, to Rolling Stone, Anna Sui, and the New York Times.

Working to literally illustrate others’ ideas of “paradise”, her dreamy pastel-hued paintings culminated in morphed landscapes that are convincingly paradisaical.
