KOMATSU MIWA

Born in Nagano Prefecture in 1984, Komatsu graduated from Joshibi University of Art & Design, where she serves as a visiting lecturer. She is also a visiting lecturer at Tokyo University of The Arts.

 

Komatsu's journey to becoming a professional artist began due to overwhelming praise for her copperplate engraving titled "49 Days", crafted while she was still enrolled at Joshibi University.

 

Although she began her career with copperplate engraving, her oeuvre has expanded to incorporate acrylic paintings and works rendered in Arita porcelain.

She is best known for her depictions of animal-like "Divine Spirits", which she creates with an abundance of expressive power.

 

Having delivered a shock to the Japanese art world and earned a good reputation amongst overseas art critics, Komatsu is considered one of Japan's most promising young artists.
