Japan- Spain 150 Years Anniversary of Comertial Relationship

 

This is one of my lastest works, a commission for Japanese Embassy in Spain. They asked me for a work to commemorate the union of the two countries.

This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Spain. On November 12, 1868, when the Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation between Japan and Spain was signed.

The measure is 135×72 cm on washi paper. There are several important monuments of both countries. It is painted in the form of a bridge that represents the union of both cultures. At work they appear:

 

The aqueduct of Segóvia

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

La Alhambra Patio Arrayanes, Granada

Puerta de Alcalà, Madrid 

Fushimi Inari ( Kyoto)

Pagodas de Houryuji (Nara)

Kaminarimon ( Tokyo)

Sky tree ( Tokyo)
