  • Leiko Ikemura, born in 1951 in Tse, an artist working mostly in painting, sculpture and ceramics. After her studies in Spanish literature at the University of Osaka, Ikemura left Japan to travel Europe and completed her education at the Sevillean Academy of Fine Arts (1973-78). At the turn of the 70s and 80s, Ikemura moved to Zurich, soon she was honored by the prestigious Kiefer Hablitzel Foundation and also by the City of Zurich. During the 80s, she lived and worked in several cities in Germany, such as Cologne, Nürnberg and Bonn, what resulted in her first solo exhibition at the Kunstverein in Bonn (1983). She found international recognition in the early 90s, with her numerous exhibits worldwide and her appointment as a professor of painting at the University of Arts in Berlin. Around the same time, Ikemura has developed her oneiric style present in her landscapes and nocturnes, blurred silhouettes or still life, balancing on the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. She is extensively exhibited worldwide, including cross-sectional shows like „JapanArtToday” (2014) at the Kunsthaus Interlaken, „Japanese Art 1950-2010” at The National Museum of Modern Art in Osaka and „Art in Berlin 1945 until now” (2013) in Berlinische Galerie.
