We introduce the world of wood craft of Akira Murayama (1944-), who is from Amagasaki City and is a living national treasure.
Murayama’s works are characterized by a glossy wood surface and beautiful wood grain patterns by a technique called “Fuki Urushi”, which prints lacquer on wood.
His works are highly regarded overseas, and stored at the Victoria & Albert Royal Museum of the Arts in England.
The first solo exhibition in his hometown will bring you to the world of Murayama wood crafts through about 45 points including valuable early works.
