Working with mirocomachiko’s gallery in Japan, The Shop Floor Project is excited to have been granted rare permission to reproduce a set of four original paintings as limited edition prints by the award-winning Japanese artist mirocomachiko.
Blue Works is a collection of four large-scale prints that explore the artist’s use of a single colour to create expressive and exaggerated primitive forms of animals, plants and people. It’s a powerful, almost shamanistic series, calling the folkloric creatures of mirocomachiko’s imagined world into being.
Born in Osaka and based in Tokyo, mirocomachiko ‘freely explores the living shapes of animals’ in her large scale paintings, drawings and sculptures. Celebrated throughout Japan where she has won many awards including the prestigious Japan Picture Book Award for her book Ōkami ga Tobu Hi (The Day the Wolf Flies) and public commissions including the windows (right) for the famous Isetan Christmas displays - think Japan’s version of Liberty of London.
mirocomachiko says of her work: “I can see colours from independent characteristics of animals, even from unknown wild animals or local stray cats. These are the colours that differ from the reality, which make living animals look more alive, and which make my heart always dance”.
