"Hideaki Kawashima explains his design inspirations:
“When I designed these two wrist watches, I envisaged them having the character of a strange creature entwining around one's arm, just like someone's loving pet. Let's say these are your 'Little Mister and Little Miss'! I do hope you will like them.”
Hideaki Kawashima was born in Aichi, Japan, in 1969. Working with acrylic paint, and often using a delicate palette of pale or even slightly translucent colours, he creates images focused on the female face and form, drawing inspiration from both spiritual and everyday sources. Despite the sense of control and precision found within Kawashima's paintings, he usually starts to construct the images directly upon canvas without using any preliminary sketches. The artist has admitted in the past that he prefers, if possible, to not give interviews about his work but instead simply present it and allow it to speak for itself. Since the early part of the 21st century, Kawashima has exhi-bited his paintings extensively at various prestigious galleries throughout Ja-pan and beyond.
