Based in: Tokyo
Iris Issen is an independent abstract artist who was born in Tokyo, Japan and raised up in London, UK. Having grown up under the influence of both Oriental and Western aesthetic philosophies, her paintings appreciate the spirit of wabi-sabi and oriental cosmogony while paying homage to the modern interpretation of space, geometry and emotions through her monochromatic use of 4 tones that originate from the Han-Yi cosmic dual forces and the five elements. By using natural pigments handmade by herself, her works also speak the connection between nature and human beings.
