JUURI is a Tokyo-born Japanese + American artist currently working from Norman, Oklahoma in the USA. Her work is the product of her mixed cultural heritage, influenced by historical Japanese elements as well as contemporary Western motifs. In her layered mixed media paintings, she portrays the delicate allure of the female face; surrounded by traditional kimono patterns, wild non-objective paint washes, and complimenting sections of gold leaf.
After switching from her intended career of graphic design in 2010, JUURI progressed quickly; creating an online presence for her art as well as social media and marketing from scratch (and many online tutorials.) Since then, JUURI has had several shows in both Oklahoma and California, and continues to succeed in selling her art online to clients around the globe. JUURI’s plan for the future is to participate in more worldwide group and solo exhibitions, and to someday take her artistic venture back to her home”town” of Tokyo, Japan.
