Meet the Masters: Akito Akagi

漆藝雅敘 赤木明登

About Akito Akagi 赤木明登

Born in Okayama, Japan, Akito Akagi started his career as a magazine editor. He decided to move to Wajima, Ishikawa in 1988, and began his apprenticeship on lacquerware making. Akagi works independently since 1994.

Akagi advocated that lacquer art should be integrated into everyday life. He is also recognised as one of those who actively promotes Japanese lacquer making in a contemporary context. His inspiration comes from those pieces of the old days and ancient times which he found in temples or locally in Wajima. Akagi’s works blend traditional aesthetics with modern style.

"I feel the vitality of many old things. They give me a sense of freedom that is deep and precipitated. It is the basis of my creation. These old things are no longer confined to the beauty of their own. This is what I strive to achieve.”

赤木明登於日本岡山出生,早年曾擔任雜誌編輯。於1988年移居到石川縣的輪島學師硏習漆藝。 1994年開起獨立創作漆藝。

赤木提倡漆藝應該融入生活,亦是復興日本近代漆藝的代表者之一。他喜歡舊日及古時的漆器例如廟宇或輪島本土的傳統中尋找其創作靈感。他的作品把傳統的審美觀與現代風格融為一體。

「我感覺到許多舊物內藏的活力。它們給我一種具深度,沈澱下來的自由感,從中得到平衡。這是我創作的基礎,那些舊物不再侷限於自身的美,是我希望可以努力實現的。」
