JAPANESE CHERRY BLOSSOMS on canvas with acrylic paint

In Japan, cherry blossoms have been a cultural event for a thousand years.

The annual “Hanami”, cherry blossom viewing parties, the many cultural simbolic interpretations of the cherry blossoms and the extensive use of the blossoms in Art, for both their innate beauty and the symbolism they carry, have ensured the blossoming trees’ position in the culture identity of Japan.

The cherry blossom holds much symbolism within Japan. According to the Buddhist tradition, the breathtaking but brief beauty of the blossoms symbolizes the transient nature of life.
