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.

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.
