If you’re a regular Bleaq visitor you probably have a pretty good idea of the aesthetics of the shared work: beautiful art with a touch of melancholy. Often these keywords result in dark colored, harsh shaped pieces: a style I absolutely adore. But there’s another side, another type of bleakness I’d love to share with you today. The work of Japanese artist Atsuko Goto shows a lighter sense of melancholy: a soft, light color palette and ethereal portrayal of his subjects. The vulnerability of Atsuko’s portraits give them a beautiful sense of melancholy, and show how beautiful the fragile can be. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading! What do you think of Atsuko’s work?
