ARTIST Yuna Higanbana


      She creates paintings based on her own experience of sexual assault. As we live in modern society, we often suffer from the scars caused by social stigma based on gender, appearance, age, etc. A number of acts of violence, betrayal, and discrimination take place in paintings with seemingly gentle colors. These things exist vividly in reality, but they are rarely noticed. She simultaneously reveals the joy of living and the scars of life, and reflects both the beauty and ugliness of this world in her paintings. I believe that this act is not art for art's sake, but rather a way to rehabilitate the distortions of reality. While affirming the part of human nature that allows us to desire others even when we are hurt by them, our goal is to provide a life-sized approach to the pain caused by common problems through paintings.

      Born in Fukuoka Prefecture, 20 years old, currently studying oil painting at Tama Art University.
