- Noh; Noh mask; art
Noh is a drama that the performer should wear on mask. It is originated from Japan and is the only extremely aesthetically valuable masquerade drama surviving in the world. The special mask used in the performance of Noh is called the Noh mask. Noh mask can be called the key to Noh and is also the most important and valuable object for the performers of previous Noh dramas. This paper aims to analyze the artistic aspects of Noh mask and extract the artistic elements in it that can be applied to modern art. At the research level, both Japanese native Noh art researchers and foreign Noh researchers are making researches on the basis of three levels of Noh mask, namely: craft molding level, art aesthetic level, and mask character level. While studying the art of Noh mask, the research should be conducted in combination with multidisciplinary to increase the scientific and in-depth nature of the research. Combining with the artistic elements, artistic emotions and artistic techniques in the Noh mask, it is also a hot topic to study the potential of applying Noh mask in modern product design and graphic design.
