  naomaria (Mixed media)


English | Japanese

naomaria created a brand new art which she coined as the, “Kimono Collage Art” in 2013. This creation was a result of her pursuing differentiation from other works which was based on her prior experience in creating preserved flower art. This art which emerged based on the concept of “intuition”, is for her the crystallization of pure imagination. She launched into this artform in 2015, and has since that time, exhibited her work at galleries, art museums, and cultural heritage sites throughout Japan. naomaria creates art that “delivers smiles and happy feelings to people all over the world through her works”. Recently, there are many kimonos being disposed of in Japan. naomaria has a profound respect, and appreciation for the many artisans and silkworms involved in the kimono making process. She seeks to rescue as many kimonos as possible. naomaria holds true to these desires as well as an unfettered free expression every moment she is creating her works. She wakes up early to walk through quiet parks, and meditate particularly while she is creating an artwork. This always helps to calm her, and inspire her with new ideas. She also takes photographs to stimulate her senses, and to avoid placing limits on her methods of expression.
