Ayane Muroya has invited Mai Yoshida to exhibit her work at the show at Noto in Japan.
It was held from April to May 2010. My animations and prints were exhibited under Ayane's curation.



About the artists:

Mai Yoshida was born in Northen Japan and moved to London in 2000 to study at Camberwell College of Art in London. While Mai studied Illustration, she discovered her interests in making animations. Her first animation, Alice’s cave has given her first oppotunities to have exhibitions and screenings in Paris, Kiev, Ohio, New York, and London, and achieved a bronze prize at Columbus International Film & Video Festival. In the same year of her graduation in 2004, she continued her study at Royal College of Art where she concentrated on creating short animations. Since Mai achieved her Master in 2006, she has exhibited her animations and prints in London, New Delhi, Tokyo, Osaka, Hakodate and Singapore. The animation Last Snow Before Spring achieved an award in Japan Media Plaza 2008. In Between Journey, Mai shows her new series of illustrations and six animations including her new work called Colours.

Ayane Muroya moved to the UK at the age of 13. She lived and studied in Bath, York and London before graduating from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Art in 2003. Ayane spent the next years working as an artist creating and exhibiting work in Japan and the UK. The daughter of two Japanese calligraphers, Ayane was brought up in an artistic environment since she was a child. However she ignored to use Japanese ink to create her work while she was at St Martins. It was only during the process of creating her Degree Show work that Ayane returned to her root and began working with Sumi inks again. 'Use of Space' has always been her great interest, whatever media she was using, and it is the key point of her work. The simplicity of Ayane's brush strokes creates an impact on the viewers and invites them to the space beyond the surface of her work.
