MISAKO MATSUMOTO

MISAKO MATSUMOTO

Since she was a very young child, Misako Matsumoto liked to draw pictures. About the time she was 26 years old, while raising her children, she began to draw in her own, self-taught way, for the cultivation of children’s aesthetic sensibilities.

Misako became interested in acquiring the qualification of the former Children’s Art Academy (Children’s Atelier Papee), opening a classroom at home, and drawing pictures for children. She was also involved in the teaching of modeling for 15 years.

After that, she poured ink on the surface of water, which was particularly impressive in the special curriculum, and the delicate patterns that were made by chance were copied with Japanese paper. Misako is fascinated by the expression of chance that cannot make the same thing again, due to the subtle effects. When Misako did repeat, trial-and-error, and washed the ink, she came to an original expression that combines ink flow and acrylic paint.

Mainly, Misako creates motifs to express a world of animals and plants and people in an unrealistic, mysterious space, leaving room for imagination to the viewer, and also bringing comfort and peace. To give healing, Misako works to create artworks every day with the aim that art can blend into your life and allow space in your heart and mind for a sense of healing.

At the same time, she continued to apply for public support, and she won consecutive awards from 2013 to 2017 at the Contemporary Children’s Art Exhibition. In 2018 she received the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award. the also grand prize at the Kawagami Shiro Memorial Echigo Yuzawa National Children’s Art Exhibition.

SOLO Exhibition

MISAKO MATSUMOTO

Peace

Nice to meet you! My name is Misako Matsumoto. I am currently residing in Gifu and working on my creations everyday. I am very grateful to be able to have my first solo exhibition abroad. The theme for my solo exhibition is “peace.” I express a unique worldview by fusing sumi (Japanese ink) and acrylic painting, with a touch of the traditional Japanese art technique, sumi-nagashi (marbling).
