Japan, especially Tokyo, is one of my favorites themes to draw. I always find so many details in images of Japanese streets. It suits my taste for detailed drawing. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Orlando

Using India ink and watercolor, Orlando Marin-Lopez conveys a poignant sense of humor through his intricate drawings of Japanese urban life. He assimilates the delicate nature of Japanese printmaking into the contemporary world. He uses the lines of brickwork and infrastructure to masterfully guide the eye through his compositions. Orlando, who is also a writer, views drawing as writing’s visual counterpart. The specific details Orlando illuminates function as the narrator of the composition. From sake bottles on window sills to minute inscriptions on storefronts, Orlando’s specificity of detail gives the sense of totality in his documentation of the city.
