Shiori Eda is a Japanese artist born in Tokyo in 1983. She graduated from the National University of Fine Arts in Tokyo in 2010, and won numerous awards including: Kume Award (2005), Ataka Award (2006), Spring Salon Award (2008), Ohashi Award (2008), Taro Amano Award (2010). The famous Japanese painter Kyosuke TCHINAI then noticed Shiori Eda. Being highly promoted by the Japanese media, her artworks are now well known, appreciated and collected in Japan.
The pictorial compositions surf between figuration and surrealism; she depicted women, often facing gigantic and unexpected natural disasters. They all address a message about the status of women in Japanese society, in which they are highly mistreated.
Working in France nowadays, the artist developed a more mature reflection and reveals an indomitable nature, sometimes soft, sometimes violent, but always prodigious. Her universe plunges us into the depths of sky and water through the fine bristles of her brushes.
From her reflections based on the place of a human being confronting with the world, Shiori Eda sketches scenes of miniature realities that she reconstructs with the aid of materials and figurines in wax. These dioramas simplify the narrative framework on simulated places and offer it a vision on an intimate scale that concentrates emotions. She paints an illusory world that is more authentic than the real life.
