Song of the Bird King (detail)
Internationally exhibited artist Makoto Fujimura created an original lithograph, “Song of the Bird King” for the Geneva Forum which was held on the University of Wisconsin-Madison in February 2010. Only a few prints from this small edition are still available for purchase for only $500 (unframed). Please contact me if you are interested.
A painter, author, former appointee to the National Council on the Arts and founder of IAM (International Arts Movement), Fujimura is a deep thinker and engaging speaker. Raised and educated bi-culturally, Fujimura’s work fuses abstract expressionism, which he explored in the US, with the traditional Japanese art of Nihonga. His art speaks of hope and the deeper reconsideration of life’s meaning within the context of beauty. One who wrestles with deep issues of art, faith and humanity, Fujimura encourages us to see the culturally transformative potentials of creating extravagant, love-filled ‘Prodigal Art’.
