We initially saw Edgar Lizarazu’s work back in February this year and were immediately drawn to his vast array of beautiful work. Edgar is originally from Bolivia but has been living in Japan since 2001. “My connection with Japan goes further than just my passion for the country – my grandfather was born in Kumamoto prefecture, Kyushu. Until 2013, I was working as a graphic designer, but then made the decision to focus only on my art. I can now be found painting in my atelier in Setagaya ward, Tokyo, every day.”
Edgar has an incredible ability to work with a range of mediums, amazingly one of which is wine! “I enjoy painting with acrylics and pastels, but most recently my ultimate passion is painting with wine. Many of my wine paintings incorporate the female figure, and the myriad of red, orange and purple hues allow me to fully capture the delicacy, sensuality and beauty of women. I love experimenting with unusual mediums, and enjoy painting not just on canvas and paper, but also reclaimed wood, hessian sacks and recycled cardboard. I feel that art can be created from anything and everything – not limited to the regular mediums. For the moment I have fallen in love with wine, and the changes it experiences over time, but am always looking for new and exciting ways to capture the beauty of the world. My love of wine and the magic it leaves behind on paper grows daily ”
