BIOGRAPHY

Born in Osaka (Japan) in 1953, Yasumichi Nakagawa graduated at the Tama University of Hachijouji in Tokyo, Design Department. After graduation, he worked as a draftsman and later became a lecturer at the Osaka State Institute of Art. During his 30-year career as an art teacher he participated in numerous competitions and various exhibitions (individual and collective) throughout Japan. The artist works mainly with the textile, focusing in particular on the study and comparison of natural and synthetic fabrics. The works on show are realized in a new technique that combines three-dimensionality, fabrics and colors. They have been exhibited in two national museums in Poland (2013). The philosophy behind this series of works is “To achieve something that no one has ever done before”. The theme “Nature and creatures” is inspired by his participation in the Water Congress, Rio delle Amazzoni, 1991.
