Kaori Izumiya

Kaori Izumiya is a visual artist, born and raised in Japan, who's been living abroad for the past few years and is currently based in Montreal.She works with multiple mediums and techniques, including painting in oils and acrylics, and recently has been experimenting with intaglio, lino-cut, silkscreen and digital printing and how to mix and layer them, to unlock new possibilities within her own art.

Her style has been constantly evolving, following the changes in her life, her travels and her experience of living far from home. 
As such her surroundings have been a strong influence in her art and leaving Japan has had a huge impact, bringing her to think about the importance of her own roots and the perception of Japanese art abroad.
