Wonderful Art Salon, Suigeikan, in Kamakura

We met a wonderful man in the beginning of our stay here in Kamakaru. He was a writer and we had several nice encounters with him, his wife and some friends. He died of cancer in just six months and his wife had organized a Farewell Party for him yesterday.
He often frequented this special place where the event was held.


The artist is Ishimura-san. He held exhibitions in Tokyo, but decided to make from his house a gallery and he arranged his works in and around his house in his own special way!

There is one big room and his art fills the walls to the ceilings completely. The paintings are separated from each other by his special sculptured frames.


Some Fish/Human statue.


His coat rack of vulture heads and the woman’s portret is completely made from leather.


And some nice chairs to sit on!

Hope you enjoyed this colorful blog!
