Artist of the Week - Kiyo Murakami
Kiyo was born in Shizuoka, currently based in Tokyo, Japan. After she graduated from art school, she continued experimenting with various art - illustration, design, music, etc. Kiyo found the best way to express herself through the world of photography. She find's inspiration in paintings, music, and movies – old paintings and classic picture books in particular, but her most creative ideas come from her childhood memories and dreams. Some of her work's are self-portraits, something she does not consider narcissistic, but rather an adventure in self-discovery that often has the benefit of being "therapeutic" as well.
