Ai Kawamura


福岡教育大学 小学校教員養成課程美術科に入学。日本画に出会う。





Born in Miyazaki prefecture, in 1975.

Admission to Fukuoka University of Education elementary school teacher training course art. I meet Japanese style painting.

Based on Fukuoka city, I have worked vigorously and have expanded the range of activities to overseas.

I draw flowers and landscapes of the four seasons that I felt as 〝beautiful" actually watching by myself, with expressions closely resembling the sense of the modernity, using traditional techniques of Japanese-style painting, such as [Yakihaku / Baked foil] which changed the silver foil with sulfur and pulled the taste Wabi

Those works are gaining evaluation that rich in color, seasonal feeling, and quality.

In addition, I strive to disseminate Japanese-style painting for guidance at Japanese-style painting classes and workshops.
