THE PUZZLE: Interiors 2 Cross Roads Music Shop 1000pc
With a love of the 50’s and 60’s American Settings, artist Hiroaki Shioya’s attention to detail brings to life this vibrant and colourful collection of Jigsaw Puzzles. Interiors 2 Cross Roads Music Shop Jigsaw Puzzle is one of the four puzzles from the Collection.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Hiroaki Shioya was born in Shizuoka Japan in 1953.
He graduated from the Japan Design School with a focus in Business Design in 1974. After graduation, he gained work at an advertisement agency, and in 1980 started working as freelance artist.
Shioya has created art for calendars, packaging, and jigsaw puzzles. Also for Tokyo Disney, he designed a “Grand Opening” poster, commemorating the 5th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland.
Shioya has always been fascinated with American cars from the 50’s and 60’s. Also everyday objects and views of the countryside have been fascinating to Hiroaki. These things that possess a gentle nature must be loved to stimulate his creativity. He believes they represent the human spirit.
Another reason why Shioya is fascinated with the American countryside is due to some of the movies and TV shows that he watched as a child. They were always so different from Japanese movies, and it made a strong impression on him.
