SHOGEN is a Japanese painter, who paints the bliss of life.
Having been strongly inspired by Tinga Tinga, an indigenous painting style in Tanzania, Africa, he left his employment in Tokyo and flew to Tanzania to study the art in 2014.
He became a pupil of Mr. Noel Kambili, one of the leading Tinga Tinga artists, and learned how to paint for a year in a village called Bunju. He became fully immersed in life in Tanzania while living with his master’s family.
SHOGEN established his own painting style and continues to be creative with Tinga Tinga’s spirit of “Making People Happy” in mind.
“I would be very happy if my paintings inspire you in some way to enjoy your life.” -- SHOGEN
