Tadashi Ura is an illustrator and an artist of "SUIBOKUGA" or ink-wash painting, which uses Japanese sumi inks (mainly black) on true Japanese washi paper. He was born in Nagasaki, Japan in 1972. He started his career in Tokyo from 1994 after graduated from  the Japan Design School in Kyushu branch. He became a freelance illustrator in 2002 and since 2007, started to receive awards in the commercial sector in Japan, which were the good design award, the TIAA award, also several Illustration or art's awards. He has created many hand-rendered or digital works in the past 25 years spanning for advertising, editorial, web, and more.
From 2006 to 2017, he had learned a Japanese ink and wash painting which is called "Suibokuga". After that he has been having own art class of Suibokuga which is named "sumi-e society SOUMOKU" in his studio or a culture school since 2017. 
His students can learn easily how to draw and more express of Suibokuga. And also he is often holding a workshop for beginners.
His inspiration comes from modern, everyday life, while his style is embedded in Japanese traditional artwork. In his free time, Tadashi likes spending time with his family - including his adorable daughters and fluffy (energetic) dog. He likes to go animal watching, and is fond of flowers, starry skies, forests at midnight, red clouds at sunset, and mountain top sunrises. Tadashi tries to express in his artwork all the beautiful things one cannot sense with the eyes alone.
He often has solo shows and live-painting exhibitions in both Japan and the USA. If you interested in Tadashi Ura's exhibition, class of Suibokuga, live painting... etc, please contact me.
