Isao Kobayashi: Mysterious Worlds

We are pleased to announce the solo art and gift book "Mysterious Worlds" of our artist friend Isao Kobayashi from Japan. The trademarks of Kobayashi’s works are their multi-layered depth and their tonal beauty. The artist is an excellent observer of hidden details. In a world full of secrets and mysteries, his paintings are signposts towards the truth. With his novelistic and dramatic touch, he takes observers into a mysterious universe, opening the door to our imagination. The introduction of a musical work aims at inspiring readers to expand their perception to the tonal aspects of art and poetry. Inspired by the artworks and a topic-related selection of her haiku poetry, the editor chose the koto piece “Akikaze no Kyoku” (Melody of the Autumn Wind), for which the composer developed a specific way of tuning the instrument - the “autumn wind scale”.

Relax and Rejoice with Art and Poetry



The Japanese artist Isao Kobayashi won first prize in the international competition “Enter into Art – LOUNGE 2”. His award-winning work can be seen on the cover of the bilingual art gift book “A Fine Art Journey”. In addition, his achievement was honored with the solo art book that is now in front of you.

With his intricate knowledge of digital technique, he points towards forgotten paths of wisdom. His works are dominated by symbolism and invite observers to look at them in depth. Taking them on a journey of discoveries, they guide them towards fascinating, unexpected insights.

At the same time, Kobayashi’s works can never be read and grasped fully. The artist succeeds in turning antithesis into synthesis, giving his works a visually captivating depth. Muted colors develop a dynamic that generates a surreal visual context and releases new energy.
