Gold-Laced Girl Illustrations
Ikenaga Yasunari Uses Expensive Element as a Medium

Ikenaga Yasunari is a Japanese artist who specializes in rendering serene women of Asian ethnicity on linen canvases. Her work is evocative of ancient traditional paintings from Japan’s past, but with contemporary and highly fashionable subjects. Perhaps the most peculiar thing about her creations though is the fact that she regularly uses gold in her pieces as a medium.

In addition to mineral pigments, gelatine glue and soot ink, Ikenaga Yasunari claims to use, “pure gold,” in most of her illustrations. It may not seem obvious to viewers initially, but upon closer examination, audiences will identify the shimmery yellow accents to be made from the expensive element. Yasanari uses gold in a myriad of ways from depicting floral backdrops to patterns on female apparel.

If you encounter Ikenaga Yasunari’s work and it comes with a hefty price tag, rest assured that the painting is worth every penny.
