Born in 1975 in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, ARTIST miu is a graduate of Takarazuka University of Art and Design Painting Course. She studied under Shozo Shimamoto, a former member of the Gutai Art Association, and learned the spirit of the Gutai - creating something that has yet to exist. Her works pursue the concept of converting the negative, cold element associated with cement into a positively charged art piece bursting with vitality to invoke love and hope in the minds of our modern society.
