Toshiyuki Enoki with Kitten

Toshiyuki Enoki (1961-present, Japanese) is a contemporary artist who works in lacquer, oil, acrylic and watercolor. Enoki has participated in the Kan-Hikari Expo in Kyoto and has installed his works at international heritage sites such as Jochi Temple, Senyu Temple and Nijo Castle. From 2010-2012, he participated in the 21st Century Exhibition of Japanese Art.

His works are dreamlike and magically combine reality, myth and fantasy which emerge into consciousness. They are a mix of old and new. His Greek mythological figures such as Pegasus, unicorns and dragons come alive in subdued colors in a fresh, unique way.

His love of cats is evident from his acrylic portraits and watercolors. In a self-portrait, he captures himself with a kitten in his arms.

Follow him on Facebook where you will find plenty of photos of him with his cats as well as his latest artwork.
