BIOGRAPHY - Hiroshi Furuyoshi b. 1959
Furuyoshi was born in Hiroshima, Japan in 1959. There, his parents ran an antiques shop and as such, he spent his youth surrounded by all sorts of intriguing objects and treasures. Naturally, he was drawn to depictions of curiosity cabinets, which are heavily featured in his complex and detailed compositions. Furuyoshi is particularly intrigued with the exuberance and grandeur of Baroque works; he uses this as inspiration to create his own unique, ultra-realistic style.
