Ai Yamaguchi

Ai Yamaguchi is a Tokyo-based contemporary artist. Her works expresses the girls who live their lives as prostitutes and wait on the men in yukaku, the red-light district in the Edo-period. The motive that consists of Yamaguchi's world is mainly based on a fine art in modern times during the Edo-period, from the latter days of 17th to 18th century in Japan. She draws the girls into the works using the original supports of hers and clear colors. The world of yukaku, which has been sensitively designed from her own creation, based on the consideration into early times in Japan. Her solo exhibition is held in New York recently, attracts attention from around the world.

日本當代藝術家山口藍的作品大多以日本江戶時代為主題。她以獨特的風格與色彩描繪了許多日本江戶時代(約17-18世紀)生活在「遊郭」的少女;她筆下的少女造型現代,畫風卻精緻古典,成功融合日本現代與傳統。山口藍獨特的世界觀與氛圍令觀者彷彿身在其中。山口藍近日在紐約舉辦個展,在國際上也備受矚目。 (註:遊郭是日本江戶時代的紅燈區)
