Mina Katsuki

Katsuki was born in Fukuoka Prefecture in 1989. After graduated from Kyushu Sangyo University Faculty of Art in 2014, completed Kyoto University of Art and Design  Graduate School in 2016.

Her process begins with making paint. She makes 230 shades of blue paint, apply them to the canvas, and stretch them out with a large self-made brush. So, her theme is “paint”. She says, "Paintings are produced by creating an illusion upon the canvas, but my goal is to focus on the paint itself."

From 2017 to 2019, she has been attracting attention in Asian countries by participating in Artist-in-residence programs in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, and held exhibitions in Korea and Taiwan.
