Ayumi Takahashi perfectly manages to mix the ancient with the contemporary, she creates stunning portraiture with eye-popping colors and clean lines.
Born in China, raised in Japan, and educated in the United States, she currently resides in Portland, where she works with painting, drawing, digital, printmaking, textile, and graphic design. We love her delicate portraits and floral patterns with bold colors and abstract shapes.
My father was an industrial designer and painter, and later became a very influential educator in China, while my step mother is a theme park designer. I moved to Japan when I was 12 and got introduced to Japanese pop culture and art. I then came to America and got my BFA in Fine Arts at Art Center College of Design. I have also lived and studied in Thailand during high school, and took courses in Central Saint Martins for graphic design during college.
