Curated by Sandra De Giorgi
Mizuki Nishiyama is a London based, mixed-Japanese artist; creating raw, vivid and multifaceted paintings that explore the fragile human condition. As a mixed-Japanese artist, Nishiyama draws inspiration from the East and West. Bridging her Hong Kong, Japanese and Italian cultural heritages.
Embracing deeply personal experiences to craft each artwork: the artist’s ongoing relationship with anxiety and trauma has greatly influenced her practice, and has fuelled her to confront vulnerability, fragility and the human condition. Painting is a chaotic yet meditative process for Nishiyama that allows her to make sense of the more tempestuous periods in life. Nishiyama holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Central Saint Martins, and a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design.
