Waro Wakao, Japanese (20th C) is a visual artist who is beginning to achieve popularity in Japan and other parts of Asia. I really love this painting. it is sensuous in a vivid red, but with the innocence of the flower. I believe as his work gains popularity here and around the world it will become more and more pricey. This is the time to buy what you like while it is still relatively affordable. (This is how I feel about paintings by Alexander Gore as well.) This particular work attracted me immediately. I like it better than the works that were sold through the noted Mainichi Auction in Tokyo.
