Kimiyo Mishima started her artistic career by creating oil paintings, before becoming known for her collage work of printed material in the 1960’s. Created when Japan was entering an age of rapid economic growth, her work was meant to denounce the inundation of information we are overflowed with, as well as consumer waste.

From 1971, and with the same purpose, the artist moved to tridimensional pieces, self-teaching herself to print on the surface of ceramic. Thus were born the Breakable Printed Materials. Whether by spreading a thin layer of clay over silk screens to transfer images, or by meticulously drawing by hand, Mishima creates highly realistic replicas of the original objects. She thus transforms the the past the artist always maintained the actual size of the original object in her works, she has more recently magnified them, with some of them now taking enormous proportions. This exhibition will present an overview of Mishima’s major artistic works.

Born in 1932 in Juso, in the Osaka prefecture, Kimiyo Mishima started as an artist by creating oil paintings after graduating from high school, in 1951. A member of the Independent Art Association from 1954 to 1969, she studied art in New York between 1986 and 1987, before pursuing her career in Japan. Mishima’s work was shown in many international exhibitions including Contemporary Japanese Art, Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva, Switzerland (1983), Contemporary Japanese Ceramic, Itinerant International Exhibition, Japan-Brazil, Art Museum of Sao Paulo (1998), and currently one taking place in ART FACTORY Jonanjima. She received several awards for her work, such as the Gold Medal in International Ceramic Exhibition, Faenza Ceramic Museum, Faenza, Italy, in 1974, and the Yamaguchi Prefecture Prize and the Citizen Prize, in 2001.

Mishima currently lives and works in Osaka and Gifu.
