Update: We have a winner, Karolien! Thanks so much to all who entered!

The Current Show is an online (UK-based) gallery run by Serena and Vladimir that sells prints of up-and-coming contemporary artists. The company just launched a new line of prints by Japanese artist, Atsuko Tanaka and in celebration they are giving away a print of Light of Autumn (below) on Art Hound!  The print is an edition of 100 and measures approx. 10″ x 20″.

Light of Autumn

“When summer ends and fall begins, the sky climbs higher and the sunshine lowers and tenders. And it starts to shine softly and gently. This artwork depicts the idea of such a sky and light reflected on the flowers.”

Tanaka grew up in the Japanese countryside and was strongly influenced by the time she spent working in a flower shop. She graduated from Nagoya Zokei University of Arts and Design in 1999 and now works as a freelance illustrator.

Cherry Blossoms

“Cherry blossoms announce the coming of spring. Japanese are truly looking forward to see them bloom. They are always beautiful whichever they are in bud, blooming, in full bloom or falling. Even fallen petals in the river are fascinating.”
