O Jun

Japanese figurative painter O Jun works in a wide variety of forms and techniques, from thick, gestural strokes of oil paint to flat images on glass sheets constructed with geometric iron elements. While similarly diverse, O Jun’s subject matter centers on human figures seemingly suspended in their stark white or densely textured surroundings, and close-cropped flattened landscapes. Whether sumptuous or stark, his images often evoke stripped-down and abstracted moments from everyday life, like snapshot photographs. Echoes of traditional Japanese composition can be found in his paintings—for example, his abstracted landscapes are often expressed as flat and colorful brushstrokes suspended in blank space.
