Shu Uemura

This gallery is inspired by the asian culture and its beauty. I individually picked each piece of art that i thought represented something beautiful within another world. I want this gallery to be a spectrum of artwork which transports you into another world where you can appreciate beauty that is out of what is socially put under the term 'beautiful'. Although each piece is individually chosen they are all link through the theme of the gallery and the asian influence and style to create a harmonious collection.
