Tanpakushitsu (たんぱく質) Biography

Artist Comment^1^

Read More

In 2011, I first learned of the word 'drawing' through (the website) pixiv.

Through Approaches to Painting (the 2020 Dec special issue of Bijutsu Techo), I found out that Tanpakushitsu was an artist known for their drawings of girls with large, overlapping eyes on notebooks and drawing paper.

Drawing lines became a crucial part of my teens and twenties because it was it helped me maintain peace of mind. Now, I can draw with reasonable distance. Now, I feel like I have been released from the overwhelming anxiety that I needed to draw. The shape of Tanpakushitsu's line has changed a lot over time and varies depending upon what ballpen was used, where it was made, and who they were speaking to.
