Casper Faassen has a special interest in Asian culture, design and arts. He finds inspiration in Japanese prints, architecture, ceramics and an introspective take on life in general. In 2016 he was invited by Japanmuseum Sieboldhuis to take this one step further and work on a solo exhibition there. He worked around the idea of ‘Mono no Aware’ which translates into a certain awareness of the passing of time. Taking things in slightly melancholically but with appreciation of beauty at the same time. The Kintsugi series came later where golden craquelures refers to the Japanese process of mending ceramics enhancing the scars.
