Mochiduki Yoshie

Mochiduki Yoshie is a Japanese painter who paints oil paintings, drawings, and water-based pen drawings. During her childhood, she loved to look at various artbooks at her birthplace in Tokyo.

She was initially interested in impressionism. After that, she became interested in various oil paintings such as abstract paintings and contemporary art. She was moved by all the art she saw and learned how to create the composition and delicate expressions from Alphonse Maria Mucha. The golden style and decoration she learned from Gustav Klimt, led her to the Japanese style. The artwork by Hon-ami Koetsu (本阿弥 光悦), Ogata Korin (尾形 光琳), and other people from Rinpa (琳派) school of painting, along with the present day artists, Ito Jakuchu (伊藤 若冲) and Tanaka Isson (田中一村), left an impression on her as an artist.
She had been drawing sketches as a hobby, but developed a malignant oropharyngeal tumor in 1999. She got an oil-colored brush for the first time during her long struggle against cancer. During such long struggles, she found beauty as a living creature in the “octopus” which represents strong vitality.
Without being bound by the means of expression, she expresses her style of what she feels in everyday life. Driven by her endless creativity, she continues to draw, trying to establish her own way of expression by running her brush.

Mochizuki Yoshie

Mochizuki Yoshie

Mochizuki Yoshie is a Japanese painter who draws beautiful octopuses. It seems that an octopus is called a devil’s fish, but in reality, it is a curious and playful lovable creature. It is said to have the highest intelligence in invertebrates, and the walnut-like brain is full of mysterious genomes. The octopus can easily pass through if there is a small hole, change the color shape so as to blend in with the surrounding scenery, use shells as a shield, use a stick to catch shrimp, cut off the legs and escape from the enemy, cut legs will grow again. In addition, the octopus is full of strong vitality, such as having three hearts with different roles. The octopus showed strength and beauty as a living creature in her fight against illness, where she was forced to face the end of life. In her paintings, octopuses appear in various colors, but this is biodiversity, human diversity, and family image. It is a symbol of beauty that lives in harmony with strength.
