Biography

Mari Ito was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1980. She studied at Joshibi University of Art and Design. She majored in Nihonga, Japanese-style painting made with traditional practices, techniques, and materials. She moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2006 and studied painting at Barcelona University. Since then she has taken up residence here and with Nihonga as her base she has developed various 2-D and sculptural works.
