Kumiko Matsushima 

Born and raised in Tokyo.


Obtained MBA. Graduated from Pratt Institute in New York.

Kumiko first pursued a business career in marketing, however somehow it did not feel right to her. She found herself drawn to artistic work, eventually realizing art making allowed full expression of her creativity.

It all started with one dream where she saw herself wearing shoes on the wrong feet. The dream was so weird that she started studying psychology and psychoanalysis, especially of the Jungian school. As a result, Kumiko changed her career path and started art creation under the theme of “Dream”. She had her shoes on the right feet.

Her source of inspiration comes not only from dream, but also from her international exposures to New York, California, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

Her works have been exhibited in New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo, including Tokyo International Art Fair and Pratt Institute Manhattan.

She has just got awarded by "CityScapes" 2018 Art Exhibition in Special Merit Category organised by Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery.  https://www.lightspacetime.art/cityscapes-2018-art-exhibition-special-merit-ma-thru-y/
