MUU NANAHOSHI



MUU NANAHOSHI

Japan | B. 1979

Muu’s paintings present a world that transcends time and reality. Inspired by the country sceneries of her childhood – houses, trees, stones, flower, moon and stars. She creates a picturesque fantasy world that blurred the boundaries of reality on her canvases. With a vibrant color palette, and her signature dreamy motifs of Strawberry Goldfish, Daifukumochis, the moon and ocean, as well as the interesting three-dimensional technique, Muu’s works brought a unique angle in the exploration of being, dreams and reality.

Since childhood, Muu absorbs herself in painting with her fingers, stones and wood chips. Everyday, she had dreams as magnificent as movies in which characters and universes emerged out of her unconscious where there were no boundaries between reality and dreams. Her works contemplate upon dreams, ideals and realities as well as the concept of past, present and future, mingled with her inner hardships, joys and sorrows, she paints the world, while letting it generate through her original filter.

Born in Japan. Before becoming a professional artist, Muu worked as art director in one of the biggest advertising agencies in Japan. In her most recent project, ‘Rinkle’, she explores the themes of nature and the cosmos. Her lively characters travel through different natural environments on earth and the universe, making us wonder about our existence and the origin of everything beings around us. Muu won numerous artist prizes including, Jury Special Prize at the Selected Artists Exhibition in 2017; Gold Prize at the Heart Art in Lisbon in 2016; Chairman Award at the Selected Artists Exhibition, Tokyo in 2016. The artist now lives and works in Tokyo.
