Uraraka MATSUZAWA was born in Chiba, Japan in 1979. A graduate of the University of Fine Arts in Tama (Tokyo), she moved to France in Lyon in 2011.

She uses the millenary techniques of Nihon-ga painting and renews this traditional art through the abstraction of Western painting. Uraraka brings all the materials she uses from Japan: washi paper that she stretches herself on plywood, iwaénogu paint made from natural pigments from crushed semi-precious stones (cinnabar, malchite, azurite, jade, obsidian, lapis lazuli...) mixed by hand with an animal skin glue called Nikawa prepared hot and a little water. She paints on the floor, without an easel, as the composition of the paint does not allow it to be applied vertically.
