Hisaya Taira

is a Japanese painter. Studied painting at Tama Art University in Tokyo. Living and working in Tokyo, Japan.

Photorealistic paintings focusing on New York’s subway system using perspective as a compositional technique. “In America there are ordinary scenes of extraordinary quality. When I first walked the suburbs, I was fascinated by the empty space—something that Japan doesn’t have-that felt like suddenly being freed from an enclosure. I was sure that what I was looking for was here, and from that point America came to dominate my everyday scenes.”
