Animals in Ink

Japanese artist Miki Saito has been constantly living between the U.S. and Japan throughout her life. She has lived in over five states in the U.S., three cities in Japan, and has traveled to more than 25 countries. Her artwork has been influenced by different cultures and ideas she has encountered along the way.

"Through the flowing pools of intangible shapes in the ink, I like to find the ephemeral and mystical moments found similarly in wilderness, where we encounter animals or breath-taking sceneries. I see the fragility of the world through these many short glimpses of interactions. Through a process called “suminagashi” I layer ink in different tones and then go in to add intricate details with a small brush using acrylic, gouache, and mineral pigments." -- Miki Saito
