Kathy Grayson has invited five Japanese artists to show their amazing art with us. 

Susumu Kamijo

Susumu Kamijo is born in Nagano in 1975 and later in 1991 moved to Brooklyn. Kamijo loves puddles, which also is his most of the time is his motive – he also shares his home with a puddle. 

Koichi Sato

Koichi Sato is a self-learned painter and born in Tokyo. Today he lives in New York, but still, he uses his Japanese cultural heritage in his art. 

Misaki Kawai

Misaki Kawai is born in Okawa in 1978 but now lives in the USA. Her painting skills and low-tech collage installations occur in all kinds of materials. Kawai consciously moves around the “traditional” technics and methods – because finds the value in the imperfect ways.

Harumi Yamaguchi

Yamaguchi is one of those painters that caught a time, where the perfect pastel drawings was fashionable in the 70s and 80s. Her art is just as fantastic today, as it was back then – Yamaguchi is a female artist that got the power to show us how amazing it is.

Tomokazu Matsuyama

Tomokazu Matsuyama is born in 1976 in Takayama. Today he lives in brooklyn, but are still obvios inspired by his Japanese cultural heritgae.
