They live somewhere between a finished piece that hangs lifeless on a wall, and the hours of planning before a work is actually created. They live in time-lapse bedlam, creating what is best described as Action Art, stroke after stroke, right before the eyes of an audience that watches captivated.

Rinpa Eshidan’s style is called “art-in-process” and with every performance and professional video the team does features members frantically painting, drawing and sculpting, sometimes in 2D, sometimes in 3 dimensions, expanding on each other’s contributions to form something vivid, new and breathing.
