The Artist

Mariko Matsushita

BIO

Born 1980, in Osaka.

B.F.A in oil painting from Kyoto City University of the Arts in 2004. Lives in Tokyo.

Her solo show has been held three times at KEN NAKAHASHI, “MARIKO” in Oct. 2015, “IDO” in Oct. 2016, and “RAW” in Feb. 2018.

Matsushita received Grand Prize for the "2nd CAFAA" Award in 2016, organized by the Contemporary Art Foundation.

Sexual love and the pain upon living, are repeated subjects in Matsushita’s works. Her painting harbors powerful energy, and she produces through an intimate relationship with the model and herself.

She researches and develops her expressive outputs besides her paintings, by introducing a new spectrum of media to her body of works, including performance, video, photography, installation and writing.
