Maki Amemori


About the artist:

I am a professional photographer, art director and visual artist based in Tokyo, Japan. I grew up being influenced by the artistic environment where my grandfather used to do oil painting. What I experienced during 3 years of childhood when I lived in Germany and had many chances to visit European countries might have fostered my current sense and interests of art. I have been taking photos of people and landscapes using single-lens reflex film since I was a teenager. I mainly do portrait photography and lead projects as an art director to create and build brand contents for promotion. In art production, I create and graphic design a piece of contemporary art using my photos of flowers, light and shadow, and scenes that I am fascinated by while I am walking around the city. The characteristic of my work is that it has the possibility of changing its texture after further printing and shaping of original digital arts. My artwork consists of three concepts. “A mixture of new and old”, "Chaos of the times”, and "Parallel World". Those are come from my philosophy that how we feel and what we see the color and shapes may be all different depending on where we are at this moment. I continue my activities with joy that visualization and expression is the axis of my life.
