Keiko Imaizumi (born in Tokyp, Japan. Living in Vancouver, BC, Canada) will be exhibiting at the Amsterdam International Art Fair 2017

"I am an interpreter for the air what it says there. I see the soul in everything and in everyone and want to describe what they want to say. For the result I photograph them and listen to them there and retouch them as a picture with a touch of Japanese traditional UKIYO-E style.

What is my definition of art?

A voice out of the bottom of my heart.

Where do I get the inspiration?

Nature, nature and nature.

How do I deal with artist’ block?

It’s like a vitamin. We need it when we feel more relaxed, happy and fulfilled.

Where do I see my art going in ten years?

My art will involve more material, more people, more international relations and more, because my art will grow with people, time and space.

Can I tell you what I have going on right now?

I am trying to use a typical Japanese material bamboo paper for my work for different touching for art media between photograph and picture.

I know my artwork is finished when….?

My artwork never finishes. Always next one is better.
