MASAKO NISHIO (Painter)


Biography

Masako Nishio was born in Kyoto in 1957.
She began drawing pictures in the wake of having lost her beloved daughter in 2011. By drawing, Masako could face the inner part of her heart, and eventually found herself healing. Masako’s paintings are fantasies. Many creatures, gods, angels, UFOs, and other such wondrous and delightful things appear in them, and the canvas is always very lively and fun. Her paintings are like scenes from folk tales, and they have a strong narrative character. Many of her works are based on Japanese myths, such as The Hare of Inaba, and the Legend of  Yamata no Orochi – an eight-headed, eight-tailed giant serpent. Vivid colors are a source of energy in her paintings, made with acrylics. The color schemes are unique, envisioned by Masako to harmonize the images. Masako is thinking of the miracles and the happiness that are born on this Earth, and she wants to convey them to the people of the world.
