Born 1982 in Tokyo, Ogino Yuna received her degree from the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts in 2007, and has since participated in numerous group exhibitions both in Japan and overseas, as well as energetically presented her works in solo exhibitions. She has also expanded her activities by getting involved in live painting events, creating artwork for a featured series in the morning newspaper and more.
Since her debut, Ogino has produced artwork using the motif of “flowers” as a symbol of the self and of women, but she has recently taken up the challenge of creating portraits that feature parts of the body, flower bouquets and other elements, expressed through a harmony of all-over patterns and the creative use of color.
This exhibition features 12 of her brand-new oil paintings and drawings including yet-to-be-shown works. In addition, her first collection of works published last year will be for sale.
