Introducing Cauro Hige

Cauro Hige participated once in Mardi Gras in 2009. Since then, we have not been able to handle his work as he has been very busy with his art projects. However, I would like to spotlight his remarkable artworks at this time. He is an infrequent artist, completing artworks in Japan and Mexico. In recent years, he has been receiving a lot of attention in the United States. You can see an interview with him in “The Art Of Man: Fine Art of the Male Form Quarterly Journal (Volume 2)” by Firehouse Studio Publications, which has already been released. Another book that documents hundreds of artists drawing male-figures from Western countries, Asia, South America and the Middle East regardless of their gender and sexuality will be published in the next year. Only Cauro Hige was chosen from Japan. His work combines Japanese beauty, male nudes and slight humor in an also individual and striking way. Maybe because he is based mainly overseas, I sense that his work has a kind of Western touch or nuance that local Japanese artists do not have. I think this is one of the reasons why he receives a lot of attention in America. As an art dealer dealing in Japanese artists, I have focused on artworks created by artists based in Japan. This is because, somehow, Japanese artists who live overseas always give a slightly different impression to those based in Japan. There are, of course, artists who change in a good way, like Cauro, however, the reverse often seems to be true. There are a number of Japanese artists living and working in Australia whom I am sometimes asked to deal with during their exhibitions. However, even if they are presenting traditional Japanese calligraphy, their artworks are usually slightly different from what I would expect. It is indisputable that their works reflect their Japanese heritage, however, as they live outside Japan, the culture and lifestyle of the country they reside in seems to strongly influence their artistic sensibilities. Surprisingly, artists themselves are often unaware of such changes. I believe if more artists can masterfully blend these factors with Japanese tastes and create new expressions like Cauro does, the art scene will become more interesting. I look forward to further art projects from Cauro. I hope to handle his work again as the occasion arises. Because there are a lot of inquiries from overseas, he is now offering not only originals, but also affordable priced prints.
