Eri Iwasaki

Born in 1968 in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan Works and lives in Kyoto, Japan

Eri Iwasaki’s childhood drawings of her favorite manga characters and interest in Buddhist paintings and sculptures led her to pursue the traditional Japanese painting methods of Nihonga. While adhering to Nihonga’s prescribed techniques and pigments, her works have an expressive range that moves freely beyond the genre’s boundaries and transform the inner feelings of people who live vigorously in the moment into “forms” that convey gentleness and solemnity.
