画家 / Live Painter

 

1985年生まれ。福岡県糸島市出身。
美しい糸島の大自然に囲まれて育ち、海に潜ったり川で泳いだり木に登ったりする幼少期を過ごす。

物心がついた時には、版画や水彩画で、人や水や植物をモチーフに、生命力が力強くみなぎる絵を描きはじめ、9歳の時に版画で受賞。

高校の美術部で油絵に出逢い没頭。
生命の誕生する水の中で、植物の躍動的な成長をイメージした抽象画「進化」が優秀賞受賞。

近年、アクリル絵の具を使用し、主に丸筆のストローク技法で描くクリスタラインペインティングを創始者の増田洋子氏に師事。

2016年第一子を授かり、力強い生命力あるモチーフの他に、植物や動物の質感や透明感、家族愛や人間の表情から感じる目に見えない心の暖かいつながりを描くようになる。

背骨の矯正治療家としての顔も持ち、内側からのエネルギーのひき出し方を重きに、人々の身体を健康なバランスにデザインする活動をしているからか

モチーフの生命力が見える絵画は、どこか懐かしさや癒しと同時に、挑戦する気持ち、エネルギーを与えてくれる。

現在、彼女自身もそのエネルギーを世界中の人々に届ける挑戦をしている

Mio Mayumi is a Japanese professional painter and live-painting performer.

 

She grew up surrounded by the beautiful nature of Itoshima city in Japan where she enjoyed outdoor activities such as swimming in the sea and climbing trees.

 

 Owing to her active childhood, she began drawing people, water, and botanically-themed pictures that were filled with vitality.

 

 She used watercolor and block print as far back as she could remember, and she received her first award for block printing at the age of 9.

 

During high school years, Mio joined an art club and was fascinated by oil painting.

 

She achieved an award for an abstract painting titled “Evolution” depicting a plant growing dramatically in the water where life started. Recently, Mio began learning the crystalline painting technique from its inventor, Yoko Masuda, in which acrylic paint and round brush strokes are used to add beautiful transparent effects to her artwork.

 

Since the birth of her first child in 2016, she has been focusing on the fine texture of plants and living creatures and integrating warm, invisible and emotional connections seen in the love of family and their facial expressions to enhance her original style of vivid and dynamic art.

 

Mio also serves as a spine osteopathic therapist to shape balanced healthy bodies and bring out inner energies.

 

Her energetic art also provides people with a sense of nostalgia, comfort, energy and a new challenge at the same time.

 

Currently, Mio is reaching outside of Japan and working to spread the energy throughout the world.

 

She has been invited to perform at one of the UK’s largest art festivals, Wilderness 2018, as a live painting performer in August 2018.
