Maria Tanikawa was born and grew up in Japan. After obtaining a BFA at Tama Art University in Japanese Painting Fine Arts in 2005, moved to New York City 2007.
Her artwork is based on NIHONGA method. Primarily, She works with sumi-ink, pigments and metal leaf (gold, silver, copper and aluminum). Even when working with a two-dimensional work, striving to create rich textures, reflection and space by using many layers of ink, metal leaf and pigment thus allowing me to capture the feeling of a three-dimensional piece. As a result of this process of layering materials. Another important aspect in her artwork is the composition of metal which creates shifting colors. The fact that metal can change color on its own as time goes by compliments the theme of her work.
