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. 
 
長野県生まれ。ベルリン在住アーティスト。大自然と身近に触れながら育ち、直感的な感覚を大切に物事と向き合う。10代の頃地域に伝わる伝統芸能(巫女舞)に携わり、いにしえの神道の精神や仏教哲学を生活の中で学ぶ。
世界の古代文明やアートにインスパイアされ絵を描き始める。力強くもやわらかい女性的なラインと日本人的な色彩・バランス感覚をベースに、生命のもつ純粋なエネルギーや自然、原始的感覚への回帰を筆先に込めている。
2011年のベルリン移住後も、常に自身の中にある潜在的な感覚を探求しながら、作品を通してメッセージを表現し続けている。
