Yumi Akiyama

Mental or imagined scenery is expressed in sumi ink in the piece based on the sprits of Japanese calligraphy.
The work also has the concept of the “blank”, the importance of the balance between black and white, tangible and intangible or fullness and emptiness.


My art is inspired by Japanese traditional art such as a Ukiyoe art.
I describe my art as a fantasy world which doesn’t exist in reality, and I would like people to enjoy my art which I made as a Japanese person with the world.
