Souichi Kawaguchi

Living in a secluded house tucked away in the countryside, Souichi Kawaguchi gains inspiration from his peaceful surroundings. Using real leaves to create impressions in his work, Kawaguchi produces an earthy yet elegant style that reflects the beauty of nature. He adds a modern twist by using gold and silver foil as accents in his pieces.
