Artist's Statement
 
My artwork takes a multi-cultural view of social, cultural, and political issues. In my work, I often paint figure art as a focal point, incorporating into the art objects and symbolism from Japanese culture. Subtle messages are juxtaposed in backgrounds and with artistic expressions.

Taiko Drummer
Acrylic on canvas 36" x 24

This painting was inspired by Taiko drums’ dynamic beat and expressive whole body movements. Japanese Taiko drums are not merely a percussion instrument; they also require a musician’s discipline of both mind and soul.

 I enjoy painting figurative art, I also paint scenic arts, ocean waves, still life, and portraits. I paint with Acrylic and oil on canvas. My recent solo art exhibit theme was a series of figures - "Femmes Japonaises"; featuring both traditional and nouveau Japanese / Amer-Asian woman. I concentrated on showcasing the feminine beauty, subtle expressions, and sensuality. I layered in Edo era symbolism with Kanji calligraphy and poems to further infuse my vision of cross-cultural art.

Swan Maiden

Swan in many cultures and mythologies is associated with  love, purity and  power of transformation. There are several mythical stories about swan's transformation to woman, but at the end it flies away and returns to her own   habitat.

Taiko Drummer
                                 Lili Miura                                                             

Lili's major themes include visionary environmental issues as well as cross-cultural figurative projects.  Despite the current political landscape, global climate change is the most important issue of our generation, actively impacting the health and potential existence of future generations.  Lili's wave, seascape and cloud artwork make a strong exclamation for the need for societal change to preserve the future of our planet.

Originally from Tokyo, Japan, Miura studied and worked in the fashion and textile industry in Japan. After immigrating to the United States, she studied fine art and design. Miura went on to have a long and successful career as a lead designer, as well as becoming the head of an International design firm in Torrance, where she received several prestigious awards.

 Enigma
 Arylic on canvas  30” x 24” (2017)

A woman embraces herself  in a backdrop of  Kanji calligraphy for “enigma”, “mystery” or “question mark”.  Each Japanese Kanji Character has several meanings and interpretation, depending on what context it’s used in. This woman is reflecting on her past and the path that has lead her to her current life.  She contemplates with a question mark, ? why.
