Yumiko Kanda is presenting her one-woman exhibit, “Hikari no Tsubu” (Grain of Light).
Yumiko uses common items as her motifs, including stationery and household goods, kitchen appliances, food, and more.
When taking a closer look, she creates true-to-life works that show the real beauty in everyday “objects”.
Yumiko uses the medium of bubbles as the focal point of this exhibit. Come and see something new from this highly praised artist.
In only a number of grains, light lingers.
A portion of them gather, shining as one light.
I want to hold onto the shape and color created in that exact moment.
Born in 1980.
Graduated from Setsu Mode Seminar in 2007.
As an illustrator, Yumiko currently creates art for books, magazines, and advertisements.
Using acrylic gouache, she draws materials from everyday objects, highlighting their beauty and texture.
In 2010, she was the Canvas@Sony Art Walk Audition Grand Prix winner.
In 2011, she won the Masayoshi Nakajou HB File Competition.
