• Kayano who was born in 1971 and grew up in Kanagawa Prefecture.
    While feeling the love of art passed down passed down by her grandfather, she painted with her father from the time she was a child.
    She wished to follow the road of design because of painting ambience, therefore did not proceed to the graphic design.
    She learned textile design in Kuwasawa: Dress Design School and after graduating the school Kayano worked for a textile company for twenty years as planning and tie designer. While she worked in company, she continued to exhibit her artwork. In 2015, Kayano held her 7th exhibition. Now Kayano is working as freelance designer. In the style of her current artwork viewers see the influence of textile design.
    Her artworks’ style are presented at exhibitions and show her changing. It has turned into a multi-colored world from black and white world.
    The first exhibition was mainly hand-painted pictures. Her current style is scanning the ones drawn in pastel and acrylic gouache, and doing a digital fusion finish in Photoshop. It has become a kind of style in the textile designing. Early day production was a means for expressing her inner self, gradually her works started providing warm feelings to the people around it. Presently Kayano thinks that she has met a good partner for life and it has had an impact on art work.
    Kayano will continue to create the artwork that give people warm happy feelings.

  • 1971年に神奈川県で生まれ育ったKAYANOは、物心ついた時から祖父が画家だった影響をDNAの中に感じながら、亡き父と共に鉛筆を握って絵を描く子供であった。絵を描く事からデザインの道に進もうと思い、直接グラフィックデザインには進まず、桑沢デザイン研究所のドレスデザイン研究科でテキスタイルデザインを学んだ。その後テキスタイルの関連でネクタイのメーカーで企画及びデザイナーの仕事を20年努める間にもアートワークでの個展開催は続けて行き、今年で7回目の開催に至っている。グラフィックデザインで仕事をしたかったという思いもあり、2年前に退職をした後フリーランスでグラフィックデザイナーをしているが、不思議な事に現在のアートワークの作風には(どこ)→(どことなく)テキスタイルデザインの影響が見てとれる。
