Dr Eiichi Tosaki is an artist, art historian, and philosopher. Born in Osaka, Japan. Moved to Australia in 1996. He has developed Bimanual Coordination Drawing (BCD: http://bimanualdrawing.wordpress.com/) for 30 years. He has lectured widely on art history, art theory, philosophy, religion, Japanese culture and practical art. He has published on art history, philosophy, and Japanese culture in Australia and the US. His book “Mondrian’s Philosophy of Visual Rhythm – Phenomenology, Wittgenstein, and Eastern thought” was published by Springer in 2014. He has exhibited and collaborated internationally with artists, musicians, and computer programmers.

BCD (Bimanual Combo Drawing) is a series/method of asymmetrical compositional rhythmic drawings, using both hands simultaneously. BCD uses structure or composition itself as an engine of making shapes and a creative generator.

The aim is to generate a variety of ‘composition’ according to the number of strokes/beats which comprise each composition. These are interpreted as forms of rhythmic structure. This approach to drawing produces non-figurative (non-iconic) art work, pursuing the musical condition of visuality through the concept of ‘rhythm as composition’ (or schema).
