Tsaku’s paintings begin with abstracted backgrounds in acrylic. ‘When the surfaces of the panels are almost completed” Tsaku says, ‘these moody, abstracted landscapes reveal the figures that will encompass the majority of the image.” The artist uses a “triple zero” paint brush and magnifying glass to achieve a hyper-realistic, almost photographic representation of the people and animals depicted in his unique imagery.
Tsaku’s works are truly unique and immediately identifiable. In his words, the depicted scenes are a synthesis of whimsy and wonder, surrealism and hyperrealism. A world, where spirits take the form of dogs and women, become amorphous elongated figures. A world, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the real becomes surreal.
