Kazuki Nakaharas sensitive drawings show mostly large-scale, abstract line fields. The sequences of strokes applied with colored pencil or charcoal are parallel and horizontally aligned line settings, whose freehand strokes seem spontaneous in their lightness. Reminiscences of Japanese calligraphy flash up in his work, a technique that has a great tradition in Kazuki Nakahara’s native Japan and was practiced by his father and grandfather. Kazuki Nakahara was born in 1980, has lived in Berlin since 2005 and studied at the Weissensee Art Academy. His drawings have been shown in numerous international exhibitions. In 2020 he was awarded the Egmont Schaefer Prize for Drawing.
