VMR – Vanessa Milito Rodriguez – is an Italian-Colombian artist born in Milan, Italy. She has become fascinated with the traditional Japanese tattoos, Irezumi, which then led her to the discovery of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints. In Protected content moved to Paris, France, where her love for Ukiyo-e and Japanese culture has grown even further as Paris is the birthplace of the ’Japonisme’ art movement.This exhibition celebrates the mix between the traditional Japanese culture and the modern pop culture. The artworks are inspired by the works of Ukiyo-e masters, such as Hokusai and Hasui. The dominant colours are blue and pink – the blue of the Hokusai’s waves and the pink of the neon lights of Shibuya, Tokyo.
The exhibition showcases mostly watercolour paintings, which introduce colourful and carefree objects inspired by Japanese folk toy
