Painting the faces in Japan's crowded cities

Japan has been the focus of many a photographer but very few artists - at least foreign ones. Carl Randall is a British figurative artist who wanted to know more about this island nation that had piqued his interest. Bursaries allowed him to spend several years in Japan, sketching, painting and drawing thousands of people - in crowds, on trains, in shops and at play - in his bold and distinctive style. He spoke to Dan Damon about his art and the people depicted in it.
