about me


Haruka Sasaki

“When I paint, I’m trying to intuit; if I have some idea or theme, I search for some history or stories. I try to dig deep inside, find the unseen, and the not visible. I paint always with a positive message.”

Haruka was born and raised in Nagano, Japan. She grew up surrounded by big expanses of nature, thus she faces things with her intuitive feelings. 
From the age of 12 to 15, she participated in the traditional performing arts of Mikomai (a sacred dance performance dedicated to the Shinto gods) in her region. At the same time, she learned about ancient Shinto spirits and Buddhist philosophy in her daily life. Later, Haruka began painting inspired by the world’s ancient cultures. 
In 2011, she moved her base to Berlin, Germany. 
The living line of her painted art shows the pure energy of life and connects back to the primitive self. Haruka honors the Japanese sense for colors and balance with her powerful and sensitive feminine force in the brush stroke.
