Alexandre Imai

Splash Painting

From Informal, born in Paris
To splash painting.

Alexandre Imai was born to Toshimitsu Imai, one of Japan's leading Western-style painters, and his Austrian mother. His father, Toshimitsu Imai, was based in Paris and Japan, introducing the Informal movement to Japan and was active in the fusion of Japanese painting. Alexandre Imai has established a world of splash painting by drawing his father's lineage and further merging Informalism in Paris with traditional Japanese culture. Also, as an artist with a variety of styles, he has a sense of elegance that combines boldness and delicacy, considering that he also has a pop expression with a rough touch. The fine-grained droplets do not make you feel violent and angry, but you can hear the sound of relaxation in silence, reminiscent of elegant Japanese traditional culture.

* Informal = French: Art infomel, meaning atypical art.
