Okada Yo was born in Kanagawa Japan. Following graduation from Musashino Art University (M.A. in Fine Arts), she moved to London in 2002, where she is still based. Kamakura Gallery has been introducing her works since 2002 mainly in group exhibitions. In this first-time solo exhibition at Kamakura Gallery, 20 works, oil paintings and drawings, produced between late-90’s and 2016 will be on display.

She always finds motifs or themes of her works through her real-life experience that she says “small stories.” A braid, a lace fabric, a fire, main characters in movies, celebrities, and etc. She focuses various “stories” range from peculiar things to ordinary ones. These stories sometimes remind us our own stories, for this reason, her works give us a way to see things from a different angle or with good humor.

The group exhibition included works of Okada Yo, “DOMANI, The Art of Tomorrow” is on view through February 5th at The National Art Center, Tokyo (Roppongi).
