(b. 1994 Chigasaki, Japan) Lives and works in Vancouver, BC
Nano Murata is a Vancouver based painter born 1994, Chigasaki, Japan. From an early age painting became a way to mediate and moderate the relations between her reality and subconscious. Painting from life, Nano makes observations of everyday objects and places that cross her path, re-interpreting the light through colour with her brush stroke. Forgotten corners, iridescent glasses, fragments of clutter, and cherished houseplants are all potential subjects for her work. Her non-hierarchical still life collections depict her belief that every little thing carries its own beauty.
