Bio

Gina-Marie Cincinnati is an American artist based in Tokyo, Japan. Born in West Islip, New York in 1981, she grew up in Bel Air, Maryland before attending college in Baltimore, Maryland at Maryland Institute College of Art. She graduated in 2003 with a degree in Graphic Design, and concentrations in Photography and Digital Media Art.
She lived and worked in Germany from 2009 until 2013. After six months in Lewes, UK, she landed in Tokyo in 2014, where she currently resides. She has illustrated two books and exhibited her work internationally.
Gina’s art has always been mixed-media and collage-based, with subject matter often considering or confronting the darker, unspoken underside of life and existence. While her journey began with mastering Adobe Photoshop and film Photography, her work later evolved to be more physical and tangible.
Early obsessions with photography, silk-screening, and paper production eventually led to her natural affinity for Japanese Chiyogami and Yuzen papers, which she utilizes in her current collage series, ‘The Chiyogami Portraits’. These collages in their physical form are the intersection of the permanent and the fragile, the temporary and the immortal. What was, what is, and what will be.
