Water jug ​​and flowers 10F (53 x 45.5cm) Created by Toshiyasu Doi


Inside the painting, a strange pitcher and a vase with purple flowers are arranged.

The faces of a man and a woman are painted on the jug. Is this a water pitcher design? It's very strange that the man and woman look as if they exist inside a jug.

The vase has a long, slender shape that contrasts with the rounded pitcher. Purple flowers arranged in a vase exude a quiet beauty.

It can be said that the unique idea and exquisite color combination provide the viewer with aesthetic enjoyment and inspiration.
