‘Shinjuku Garden' is a fluid original koi painting by British artist Sian Storey, and part of an ongoing series of paintings inspired by the beauty of Japan.
A long, rectangular canvas sized at 30x100cm and 5cm depth, Sian used acrylic and spray paint to create this peaceful and tranquil painting. The colours of fresh turquoise, soothing yellow and lilac, watery green and gold work harmoniously together to create a beautiful backdrop of flora, movement and watery reflections for the fish in motion.
There are flashes of gold spray paint that catch the light with a shimmering effect. Look closely and you’ll also see origami paper all the way from Japan pasted onto the painting.
The painting is signed by the artist Sian Storey on the front and reverse, and will be a stunning addition to your art collection.
Japan’s beauty is a constant source of inspiration for Sian. Considered a good luck symbol in Japan, these koi fish feature flashes of gold, as if in a shimmering Japanese pond. Spray paint mists and acrylic pools of colour add to the ethereal and fluid feel of 'Shinjuku Garden'.
This piece was directly inspired by Sian’s travels in Japan, and a visit to Shinjuku Gyoen, which is an oasis of green in the heart of Tokyo. The title itself refers to these inspiringly calm and serene gardens away from the bustle of the city.
