Hiroshi Furuyoshi was born in Hiroshima in 1959 where his parents ran an antiques shop. He spent his youth surrounded by all sorts of treasures and curiosities, which he naturally loved and unsurprisingly has always been drawn to depictions of curiosity cabinets. Their representation in art was popularised in the first half of the 17th century by artists such as Frans Francken the Younger, Jan Breughel I and Rubens. Furuyoshi is particularly interested in works from the Baroque and is intrigued by the exuberance and grandeur of the period. Furuyoshi has used these sources to create his own unique style, a style so ultra-realistic that the viewer wants to reach out to touch the objects in the cabinets. With Campbell, the artist has created an incredibly compelling work that will captivate the viewer time and time again and does not let go.
