The very gorgeous Mirocomachiko

It’s Wednesday! And this means that Lucy is no doubt over on the other page featuring some amazing Australian home. Surprise! Today you get two for one because I’ve got a home tour of my own. This is the Meguro home and studio of Japanese artist Mirocomachiko, her partner and their cat Tetsuzou.

It’s fair to say that there is no shortage of talent in the Japans contemporary art scene! Many of my favourite artists are Japanese. A new discovery for me on this trip was the work of Mirocomachiko. Mirocomachiko gained her fine arts training from Kyoto Seika University and the Art School Umeda. She exhibits regularly throughout Japan and has illustrated a number of books. What I immediately loved about Mirocomachiko’s work is her direct, fearless and intuitive use of paint. She is definitely a painters painters. When I had the chance to met Mirocomachiko I discovered not only was she very cool but so too was her abode.

I loved these cut out birds by Mirocomachiko so much that she snuck two into my bag without me knowing! I now have them flying in at my place in Northcote.
