Japan in 1983, today Shoko Okumura lives and works in Milan Italy.
Recipient of a distinguished government scholarship, in 2008 graduates with a
Degree in Traditional Japanese Painting at Tokyo University of the Arts.
Following her degree and subsequent move to Florence Italy to learn the art of
fresco restorations, a newfound understanding of fresco techniques and colors led
to experimenting and applying Italian pigments to Japanese painting techniques,
which often utilizes metal supports such as gold or silver leaf.
The key aim is to represent the relationship
between nature and people. The seasons passing, colors transforming and sounds merging
towards renewed harmonies have always, across all cultures, been a source of art
inspiration through its diverse forms of expression and of deep emotions among souls
who are open to the world’s wonders.
