Beniko Choji | Japanese Paintings

Beniko Choji is a Japanese painter who is located in Saitama, Japan.

She has actively had many exhibitions in and around Tokyo since 2014 after her graduation of art university. She became one of very popular artists and her art works quickly sold out at her exhibitions at department store galleries. She is a member of the Naive Art of Japan and has received many awards from it.

She wants to paint a human like figure with internal emotions and a quiet expression rather than a portrait of people.

Here is her artist statement.

People seek warmth unconsciously and dispose unhappy emotions. We can lough and are able to feel happiness because we have had opposite emotions in the past.

I am hoping each viewer will complete my work with his or her own feelings. I am painting a human figure which has a narrow void that the viewer can fill that space with own emotions to reflect himself or herself.

丁子紅子は埼玉生まれの日本画家です。

女子美術大学日本画専攻卒業後、現在現代童画会会員として都内ギャラリー、百貨店を中心に、展示活動を行っています。

わたしの一貫したコンセプトは、見てくださった方々がそれぞれの心で受け取り、完成させてくれるものであって欲しいということです。

無意識に人は暖かさを求め、いらない感情を捨てていく。

だけれど今、笑ったり、暖かな幸せを感じることが出来るのはそれとは逆の想いをどこかで感じてきたから。感情を入れ込む隙間を描き、いつかそこにあった心が少しでも確かなものになるように、現し身となるヒトガタを描いています。
