Maya Aomatsu is a Japanese artist, born in Tokyo, who is currently studying Fine Art in Newcastle, UK. In her childhood she was surrounded with artist books of Mark Chagall and Henri Rousseau then became passionated to art. She completed high school in Switzerland, and entered University of Arts London for a foundation year. She started learning oil painting around that time, and now is her main medium of the works. Being inspired by Paul Klee, she became curious to theorise her own works, then started research about symbolism and surrealism. Studying Art History beside practical works at Newcastle University enriched her conceptual study.
