Gaku Nakagawa Buddist Monk and Illustrator

August 29, 2011

Born in 1966. Gaku Nakagawa studied Buddhist art at a university and worked as a copywriter after

his graduation.

From 1996 he started to work as illustrator and is also a Buddhist monk of the Jyodousyu sect who

works from his atelier within a temple in Kyoto.

Taschen published his works in Illustration Now! (2005). He works within a section of government

and municipal offices illustrating, books, a magazine, etc. He is quite an accomplished artist and

seems to have a flair for more journalistic travel illustration.

It must be the Buddist in him that makes his work feel so calm and relaxing.
