Keisuke Teshima is the self-taught artist behind One-Stroke Dragon. He draws his dragons in one single stroke to convey the feeling of the ties you have with a person; that the relationship can’t be broken. After 3 years of practicing, he had his first debut as a painter in 2014, holding his first solo exhibition in Ginza. As one of the few one-stroke dragon masters remaining in Japan, he restored over 200 Buddhist temples' artwork. He uses the traditional teachings and methods of dragon art from the Edo era but puts his own spin on it. It is said that the “One-Stroke Dragon” has long been associated with bringing “Good Fortune” to the owner. A Dragon “Facing UP” is proud and symbolizes “Ambition”, a Dragon “Facing DOWN” is praying and is acting as a “Guardian”.
