MAYU DAIGEN

Born in Osaka in 1985, Daigen Mayu uses traditional materials such as silk scrolls and mineral colors to paint traditional Eastern motifs, from goldfish, which occupy an important place in the aesthetics of leisure, to Buddhist iconography. I paint these images from a putatively Orientalist standpoint, the better to undermine the superficial ways in which such motifs are taken up in Western art history. Recently, Daigen participated in the Mount Koya Mandala project organized by Kyoto Saga Art University. The mandala was completed in July 2010 and ritually accepted.
