Miki OKAMURA

Miki OKAMURA

Born in Nara Prefecture 1990; lives and works in Kagawa Prefecture.
Why do mystical beliefs in myths and nature, which are difficult to visualize and depict, still exist today at a time when science dominates our daily lives? Okamura’s art-making, primarily her painting, pursues this question. As a student at the Kyoto University of Art and Design, she participated in the Setouchi Triennale (2013) in collaboration with Kenji Yanobe where she painted a large-scale wall painting for a ferry waiting room on Shodoshima Island. She has since created many wall paintings for corporations, stores, and theaters throughout Japan. At KENPOKU ART 2016, she will undertake a ceiling painting for Sai Shrine, one of the shrines of Oiwa Shrine, a local power spot in Hitachi city. Using the traditional technique of ink painting, her work will offer a contemporary view of the ancient world of myths.
