動物の純粋な生命力 と 人間へのメッセージ






















"Pure Energies with messages from my animals"

Putting forth all of my energy I begin painting by releasing control of myself to my body

This is often without any planning or conscious thought

Within the naked,energy brimming chaos of my art,

I find a certain animal-like creature


So as not to erase it’s goodness

So as not to sully it’s true heart

I keep painting until the animal come into existence fully


After the birth, I give it a name

by trying to understand about it's behavior and inner being

My animals each always show their unique energy and great potencial to humans

They always give us messages like, 7

" You have your own unique energy and great potencial just like me "

I hope that people can discover them by being with my animals


Kyoko Uematsu



Kyoko was born in Takasaki-city, Gunma, Japan.

After dropping out of university, she graduated from a design school.

She worked while she was being worried and thinking seriously about her life everytime

Because she has suffered from sensibility issues since she was a child,

she has faced various struggles throughout her life.

She wanted to live a life doing something that no one else in the world could do but her.

Finally she found the life to live with art when she was 26 years old

and became determined to be one of the top artists in the world.


After moving several times,she now paints at her studio in Gunma and has exhibitions in various countries,

and under COVID 19, people from various countries have collected her works online.

She claims that she doesn't have any inspiration for her art.

She only prepares real and natural her body in front of a canvas.

Without any plans for what she is about it paint,

she taps into her stream of paints while leaving out all excessive or unnatural things.


Kyoko paints with acrylics, high-solid mediums, oil pastels and colored pencils.

She has never studied how to use these materials,

and her artwork is often the result of trial and error with the motivation " I can do more, I can do more"

After several years of painting, she has been able to develop her own unique techniques.


She held the first solo show in 2015.

In 2016, she received an award from the CEO of Halcyon gallery Shanghai at a competition in Tokyo.

In 2017, she held a solo show at the Modern Art Museum, Shanghai.

Now her works are on display at the " L'Arbre à Plumes " gallery in Belgium.

In 2021, Kyoko is scheduled to participate in the group show in NYC.

Kyoko's works are not merely abstract images.

All of her works represent some kind of animal.

The animals each have their own strong, unique energy and message for us humans.

Kyoko will keep making her own works from now on.
