OSAKA CHIKA

Born 1984 Tokyo.  Attended Tokyo University of Arts gaining Bachelors of Arts and Masters Degrees. Studied under printmaker Azumaya Takemi.

Osaka  is a young but well-established as a lithographer and painter. She works with both stone and metal plate lithography, with beautifully coloured and detailed images most often of humans, each picture telling a story.  Unusually for an artist, she starts by writing a sentence or a paragraph taken from every day occurrences, and each of her images are inspired by something in her written words.  Her images have sense of humour as well as being thought-provoking.
