How I draw – Hiroe Saeki

I never learned how to draw – It happened naturally. The centre of my work is very quiet. I’m trying to deliver as much as possible with very little. For me, the difference between figuration and abstraction is not that important.

I use a mechanical pencil, colour pencils, acrylic and ink.

When I start with a new work, I first take a good look at the white paper then I compose as I draw.

Hiroe Saeki was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1978
