About Ayami


Ayami Kawashima is a Japanese painter from Tokyo and a current senior student at OTIS College of Art and Design.

Ayami began learning classical ballet at the age of three, and studied abroad at a notorious art school in Boston as a ballet major from fourteen. She went through a succession of injuries and surgeries, and a particular painting of a ballet dancer that was created during her rehabilitation was highly appraised by the principal of OTIS, which led to her admission to the school.

On 2009, Ayami’s work was exhibited at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery and 1988 Gallery. She worked as an intern at Beacon Communications, a well known advertisement company, and at American Greetings.

This collection of paintings is mainly constructed with the portrayal of hardships and emotion in the lives of ballet dancers or girls through the confrontations with original characters.

I love this picture

Audrey Kawasaki's angrier, grungier little sister with anatomy issues.

Love it!

luv it

Interesting, but too trendy and formulaic for my own taste. Have seen too many of the Anime-like "deer caught in headlights" eyed woman/girl-child thing too much.

Wow your art is simply amazing.

Another artist painting big eyes. Is it unique, because none are happy? Uh-uh.

Someone spent too much time drawing Animé.

esta super wuauuu¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
