KIRAYURINA CV

Born in Kawasaki in 1964. After working as an art illustrator for television, went to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan in 1991. Although her original major was in painting, she transferred to wall artwork using wood after being impressed by the architecture on a trip to southern Italy. At the same time as holding exhibitions of her wall artwork, she also started to make arts and crafts, such as boxes and necklaces. Since her return to Japan in 2004, her mirror wall art works were selected by the interior shop TIME AND STYLE and developed into products, and from 2008 she started to concentrate on producing brooches mainly made from wood and acrylic mirrors. At present, she is active in producing both brooches and wall artwork under the name “KIRAYURINA”.     Solo Exhibitions 2015/03           “Objewelry”(Gallery Moe,Kumamoto,Japan) 2014/12           “Kirayurina”(Desperado,Tokyo,Japan) 2014/09           “Objewelry”(Gallery Como,Tokyo,Japan) 2014/04           “Objewelry”(Gallery Sou,Sendai,Japan) 2013/03           “Wood,Acryl,Spring”(Ecru+HM,Tokyo,Japan) 2012/01           “Little Works”(Gallery Sou,Sendai,Japan) 2011/10           “Unique Jewelry”(Gallery Deux Poissons,Tokyo,Japan) 2010/12           “Mirror piece”(Time & Style Midtown,Tokyo,Japan) 2009/08           “Wood Brooch Collection”(Gallery Deux Poissons,Tokyo,Japan) 2008/08           “Deco’s brooch shop”(Ebisu Mitsukoshi Dept.store, Tokyo,Japan)   Selected Group Exhibitions 2015/01           “Art Jewelry Today”(Art Gallery Artium,Fukuoka,Japan) 2013/12           “New Jewelry”(Wako,Tokyo,Japan) 2013/11           “Nippon Vision”(D&Department,Tokyo,Japan) 2013/03           “Art Fair […]
