Mitsushige Nishiwaki
Derived from street scenes of Paris, New York, and London, Mitsushige Nishiwaki’s spirited etchings offer an imaginative use of iconic urban scenery characterized by their seemingly naive, innocent, “outsider art” point of view. His etching technique is textured and bold, yet the art has a delicate and whimsical facility about it.  Beginning in 2009, and self-taught in intaglio, Mitsushige Nishiwaki’s etchings are on copperplate.
For highlighted color, he etches on plastic so as to intensify the color. His larger works are made up of a series of abutting small print-plate sizes, providing a visible armature for the artwork.
