Koei Miura draws what he feels more than what he sees, motivated to capture the essence of natural movement. With absolute focus, he can capture a gesture in a single sumi ink stroke. In paint, he can also capture the vibrant life of a full pose. Though he previously used oil for figure painting, Koei currently prefers AQYLA, a water-based resin paint. Given the richness of AQYLA’s color, the switch seems permanent.
