Meet the Masters: Akito Akagi

About Akito Akagi

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.

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。
