Episode 11: Makoto Fujimura

Makoto Fujimura Art and Faith Podcast

ART + FAITH

Have you ever met someone and immediately felt like you were kindred spirits? Artist and “accidental theologian,” MAKOTO FUJIMURA, was such a fun, surprising, guest on today’s episode. Mako is a leading contemporary artist whose process-driven, refractive slow art has been described by David Brooks of The New York Times as “a small rebellion against the quickening of time.” His art has been featured widely in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums around the world. As a painter, Mako fuses fine art and abstract expressionism, while tackling spiritual questions through the prism of art. 
As the author of Art + Faith: A Theology of Making, we talked about the importance of beauty, creativity, and making new things as a way to push back the brokenness in our world. So whether you are an artist by trade or just someone looking for a dose of inspiration, I think you’ll find this conversation with Mako to be soothing for your soul.
