Erina Matsui

June 2, 2013

Erina Matsui is a Japanese artist whose artistic practice is based on self-portraits, a genre that she sounds out in a very characteristic way before the background of the kawaii aesthetics so omnipresent in her home country Japan. Matsui’s paintings open up to the viewer through many surprising details and create imaginative worlds, in which cosmic myriads of stars, creatures of fable, cuddly toy mice or deep sea monsters cavort alongside different but always subjectively interpreted portraits of the artist.
