Biography / Miho Hirano

Miho Hirano studied painting in Kodaira, Japan. Conceptually, she focuses on the observation that people love to decorate themselves. Instead of adorning her protagonists with gold and precious stones, the painter embellishes them with organic and living accessories such as flowers, birds, fish and water. Following her first successful shows in Japan, as well as double and solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, the artist collaborates with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Hirano takes elements from nature because she wants to emphasize the immanent beauty of vegetation and living beings. Even as a child, the artist felt a certain connection to animals and plants. As a fan of manga and comics, Hirano transports a certain childlike carefreeness into her artistic practice. Through her work she investigates the transience of life and the perpetual process of growing and maturing, which can also be transferred to humankind.
