Leiko Ikemura

After leaving Japan in 1972, Leiko Ikemura (born in Tsu Mie) has lived and worked in several European cities, moving from Spain to Switzerland and Germany. Since the 1980s, the artist has developed a vast oeuvre of paintings, works on paper and sculptures, combining Far-Eastern influences, like an animistic apprehension of the world, with her artistic position clearly shaped by a European point of view. Throughout the different media, her works are always determined by ambiguity and impalpability.
