Biography / Audrey Kawasaki

Japanese-American artist Audrey Kawasaki has been reading Manga comics since her youth, which inspired her from an early age. In after-school lessons at an art school she learned the basics of painting and drawing. After high school, Kawasaki enrolled at the Pratt Institute in New York, where she dropped out two years later. Nevertheless, shortly thereafter she had her first solo exhibition in the United States, which was soon followed by international shows. Her work can be found on her collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Kawasaki’s art explores contrary themes of innocence and eroticism and is concerned with the mysterious intrigue of female sensuality. She paints on wooden panels, whose natural grain lends the works a mysterious atmosphere and depth. The painter’s creative influences include both Eastern and Western traditions, ranging from Art Nouveau to Japanese comics. Her melancholic portraits of women regularly cover the front pages of magazines worldwide and have been featured in numerous publications.
