"The Unforgiven II" by Usugrow
Tokyo-based artist Usugrow's black-and-white paintings often include poetry written in his unique style of calligraphy. "Black and white are simple but striking--when put together, the contrast can be almost blinding. There are endless ways I can combine these basic colors, and I love the feeling they give me with the simplicity. Maybe someday I'll start including other colors, but black and white have endless possibilities for me, so I'm not sure when it will happen."
This stark contrast is used to strong effect in Usugrow's piece inspired by "The Unforgiven II." Usugrow spoke more about art and inspiration in this exclusive interview with The Black Box.
