Ten Shi Jin

MARIO: After decades of conflict between a very formal Western art education and an even more formal immersion into traditional Japanese art, I have managed, in my own way, to reconcile the two. These two traditions influence not only the art I create but also my entire life – in the most literal sense. Working within the lure of two very diverse ways of expression and a continuously evolving body of work, I have found joy, harmony and tranquility in bringing these two worlds together in a way that makes sense to me. It is my spiritual practice. The result delights me, and kindles a sense of surprise at how well they fuse together, and how much they reveal about me.
