Marie Higashi

I am an abstract painter. I started painting on my own in 2017 due to internal motivation, and have been based in Tokyo since 2018. "Beautiful is not the only thing that is beautiful. Life is fragile and ephemeral. At the same time, it is vivid, unrestrained, and powerful. I want to depict the phenomenon of "life" that has such a variety of qualities. Because I think that vivid life is beautiful."
