jon koko

Okay, I was already missing traveling, but now I want to go traveling and then go swimming when I get there. These quiet, dreamy ink wash paintings are the work of Swedish artist Jon Koko. Yes, Swedish… but with a deep love for Japan:

‘After my first encounter with Japan, something indescribable happened inside me. You could say that my life changed completely from that point. The Japanese aesthetic and art became my main source of inspiration, while at the same time I was experiencing a sort of spiritual awakening.” ~ via Pen Magazine

The final piece above, titled Blå Vass {Blue Reeds}, definitely feels like a spiritual awakening to me. Love.

Some of Jon’s work is available in his online shop.
