Junko Yamada

By applying modern subject matter and vibrant colors to a traditional Japanese art form, Junko Yamada creates truly unique works of art on rice paper. Her collages compose with thousands of pieces of fine paper in the tradition of “Harie”, a style of art that dates back several centuries in Japan.
Born in Kyoto, Japan, Junko grew up along the pacific coast outside of Kyoto where she was impressed and influenced by spectacular scenery. Her academic training includes the Art Institute of Boston in the late 1980’s and the Art League in Alexandria, Virginia throughout the 1990’s.
Now having come full circle, her Japanese origin is reflected in her American training just as the natural beauty of the Japanese seashore is reflected in her choice of color and style. Junko Yamada hopes that, like the ocean and mountains of her youth, her work instills a sense of tranquility and inner peace, a visual escape from everyday life.
Junko was selected as a final artist of 2010 National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

My Images are all paper collages. Each piece is combined with thousands of pieces of paper. When you look from a distance, it looks like a painting. But when you get close to it, you can see those layers on top of layers. It is 2D art but feelings of 3D art. The details information (dimensions, year and prices) of my art images are in my website.
