Since his late twenties, Oizumi Naoto has painted in oil, mainly focusing on landscapes. Since around 2000, Naoto has been interested in China’s old towns, which are regretfully disappearing due to the country’s rapid economic growth. He enjoys depicting their white plaster walls and roof tiles. Naoto has joined TAL’s life drawing sessions since 2019 and enjoys creating figure paintings in oil and pastels.
