Akiko Nakayama

Creating a sense of energy and metamorphosis to bring a painting to life is Akiko Nakayama’s intention. The artist combines movement and vibrant colours to challenge the idea of a flat, static medium. Different types of liquids are employed to this end, their unpredictable interactions creating a dynamic environment. The meeting of colours refers to the dance of Yin and Yang.
