Finding God Through Art

Golden Fire

Golden Fire II, Makoto Fujimura
Mineral Pigments, Gold on Kumohada

Makoto Fujimura is a contemporary artist who paints abstract works in the Japanese style, called Nihonga. Not being a specialist in contemporary art (to put it mildly!) I just learned about him today from Jody Thomae’s blog, God’s Creative Gift.  She posted the video, below, of the artist discussing his discovery that Jesus is the source of beauty and creativity. Enjoy.
