Mayumi Kikuchi is a painter born in 1986 in Saitama, Japan. Mayumi attended painting classes as a child, but quit after one year because she could not get used to the classes. After that, Mayumi had little contact with art. In 2019, she discovered alcohol ink art works on social networking sites and was fascinated by them. Soon after, she attended workshops online and other places and became captivated by the joy of art and the beauty of color. In 2022, she decided to face art in earnest and now she is currently sharing her artwork on SNS.
Mayumi has loved looking up at the sky since she was a child. The endless blue. That it is connected to the universe. When she thinks of the universe, she feels that her problems are very small. That is why she represents it through painting and as she states: “free your mind. I want you to love yourself as you are”.
