Ayako Rokkaku (born 1982 in Chiba, Japan) lives between Berlin, Porto, and Amsterdam. Rokkaku creates her paintings in an intuitive, performative act in which she applies the acrylic paint with her bare hands, transferring the movement of her body onto the canvas. The artist’s visual language oscillates between intangible abstract formations and figurative elements. It is clearly inspired by the style of kawaii culture and as rich and limitless as a child’s vivid imagination.
Ayako Rokkaku has had solo exhibitions at international institutions including Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art, Japan (2020); Museum Jan van der Togt, Amstelveen, The Netherlands (2019); Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava, Slovakia (2012); and Kunsthal, Rotterdam, The Netherlands (2011). In 2015, she showed her work at the Swatch Art Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. Works by the artist are part of the collections of Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Voorlinden Museum, Gunma Museum of Art, Sehwa Museum of Art/Sehwa Art and Culture Foundation, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Karuiuzawa.
