Miwa Komatsu is a contemporary artist known globally for introducing Japanese culture through her art. She was amongst the finalists in Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs and her artworks have been exhibited in the Grand Palais. In 2014, her artwork “Shin-Fudoki” was donated to the Izumo Oyashiro (Izumo Taisha) shrine, where it remains on display.
In Paris, she performed a sensational live painting and called the artwork “Sakura”, after her favorite Christian Dior fragrance. For Miwa, Sakura embodies people’s prayers and reminds her of trees. These two elements together give a feeling of spring for Japanese people.
