Landscape artist Brian Williams

Brian, a landscape painter who expresses "light, air, and silence," is an American born in Peru. Fascinated by Lake Biwa, he now lives in a renovated farmhouse in Ikodate, Otsu City. He passionately follows the changes of the four seasons, worries about the destruction of nature, and appeals for the protection and restoration of nature.He travels around Japan and abroad to sketch, and has published numerous watercolors, oil paintings, and prints. Brian's curved paintings are so realistic that you feel as if you are looking at a real landscape. In 2022, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of coming to Japan, and as a token of gratitude to Shiga Prefecture and Lake Biwa, we donated a large curved painting, ``Lake Biwa Four Seasons'', to Shiga Prefecture together with over 300 supporters.
