Mikiko Hayashi

Yamato-e, a classical style of Japanese painting, originated in the capital Kyoto along with tanka (31-syllable Japanese poems) and kana (Japanese syllabaries); it lent elegance to the life of the Imperial Court and aristocracy in diverse ways.
Every piece I produce is imbued with my desire to bring the grace and refinement of those times into our modern world.
I would be happy if you could feel the gracefulness of the Heian court across the span of a thousand years.

Mikiko Hayashi
