About Yumi Kudo

 
 
  • Biography

    I was born in Okinawa, one of the sub-tropical islands of Japan, and grew up in Yokohama, a port city South of Tokyo. I moved to UK to study my degree at University of the Arts London in 2005. Since then I have been living and working as an artist/designer in London.

    I enjoyed painting since I was a child and painting has become one of my essential ways to express myself. My favourite subject matters are animals, nature, seascapes and people. I like to paint both figuratively and imaginatively. My paintings are influenced by 19th-century impressionist painters such as Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. I aim to capture the natural light, colour and movement, breathing life into the painting. My favourite medium is watercolour, as I like the natural flow and freedom I can explore through this medium.
