    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    This is one of the paintings from Takeru's still life series. In this painting, he depicts a candle with wax melted and dripping down to the light blue plate. On the top of the candle, there is a lemon instead of the candle flame. What is more, there are several small nails both in the lemon and the candle. The lemon traditionally signifies fidelity and is often associated with virginity. The candle can symbolize the passing of time, death or loss of virginity when it is extinguished. By putting the nails on the lemon and the candle, is the artist trying to oppose to the traditional notions these items hold?

Takeru Amano

Japan Born in: 1977

Takeru Amano is a Japanese artist born in 1977.

Takeru has been in contact with the world of art since his childhood, and in 1997, he moved to New York where he studied engraving for three years. Upon his return to Tokyo, he mixed the new influences from the big apple with the Japanese pop culture which gradually lead to defining his own style.

Using classicism and modernity in his creations, Takeru Amaro combines accuracy of the line to an explosive color palette from the pop culture.

His works have been part of several solo and group exhibitions, specially in Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
