2018

$23,154.67

About

Diptych. Mari Ito was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1980. She majored in Nihonga, Japanese-style painting made with traditional practices, techniques and materials. She moved to Barcelona (Spain) in 2006. Since then she has taken up residence here and with Nihonga as her base she has developed various 2-D and sculptural works. With her motif centered upon her childhood experiences, loud colors and sensitive but sophisticated lines create unique works beyond traditional Japanese painting, opening up a unique image of the world. In pursuing the universal theme of the seeds of human desire, with its mix of happiness, sorrow and wrath, and in particular through the recurring image of flowers with faces, she reveals her distinctive approach, which is also filled with humor.
