Profile

Yumi Nagata

Born Tokyo, Japan, 1997
Education Tama Art University Japanese Painting Course, 2021

Concept

Nagata’s work is created upon a denial toward herself for drawing girls, which is her only focus, as objects in pictures. Through her work, she expresses her conflict state of mind that is swayed between a denial and an affirmation to her obsession with the object.
Nagata states, “My work is a seek of painting which can be created by only me as a person who grew up in ‘Nijigen (ACG – subculture) generation, and also a warped resistance and challenge for Japanese art and contemporary art history.”
