Yurie Nakagawa was born in 1986 in Kumamoto,Japan. She got her master’s degree in oil painting from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2011.
As her father, Keiji Nakagawa, is an artist, she grew up surrounded by art. So, she naturaly took to art in early childhood.
Her theme of the art is “LIFE”.
She focuses on the relationship between the art and its creator’s personality. Therefore, each and every thread created with her lively stitch, intricately intertwined with each other, gives birth to a new breath. Her embroidery works which show a different look each time, as if they are living things, are created with her individual, bold , delicate and strong way of stitching.
Recently she takes notice of “the journey of life”, above all dinosaurs’ and human nature’s.
“There are not any differences between dinosaurs and human nature. Dinosaurs evolved with organic relationships. They battled with each other, helped each other, competed with each other and gave to each other. The era is different, but humans do the same.” She says we can find the possibility that humans are going to see the light in the future that we have not yet seen through the dinosaurs’ journey of life.
Besides producing her own art , she currently supports children’s artistic activities at her art school, Nakagawa art room, in Kumamoto Japan.
