Japanese painter Ayune Shojima creates colorful oil paintings filled with flora and fauna that seemingly overflow from the canvas. In her new series titled “Circle of Wind,” Shojima illustrates the seasonal winds of change that blow through the natural landscape. Each painting is like its own window into a bustling world of wildlife preparing for the new season.
The 32-year old Tokyo-based artist studied at the University Of The Arts London Chelsea College and has exhibited in London, Miami as well as around Japan. Her latest solo exhibition Circle of Wind just opened at H.P. France Window Gallery Marunouchi, right by Tokyo Station, and runs through the end of October 2020. You can also follow Ayune Shojima on Instagram.
