岡義実

Yoshimi Oka is a painter who is active internationally as a full-fledged Neo-Impressionist.
Expressing the atmosphere of Europe with pale colors, he transparently sees the scene he saw in 
the sketches drawn on the spot, overlays the feelings accumulated in his heart on the brush, and composes the screen with new values. The graceful colors created by layering the expressions of light and shade moisturize the viewer's heart and make them feel gentle.
