Naomi Yuki’s Early Career and Approach to Abstract
Although initially drawn to art at a young age after encountering installations by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Naomi did not pursue her passion until later in life. At thirty, Naomi moved to Florence to study Drawing before embarking on a four-year course at the Beaux-Arts Academy in Rome. In 2012, the artist participated in her first art fair, "Tagboat”, introducing her uniquely dynamic approach to contemporary abstraction, which she calls ‘Artwarp.’ Her multidimensional works, which aim to override common sense, are now regularly sought after by gallery owners and collectors worldwide.
Naomi won the 2007 Ventaglio Prize in Rome, Italy, and received special mentions at the 2011 Nihon Bungakukan Art Awards, Tokyo, Japan, and the 2014 Tokyo Art Navigation Prize, Tokyo, Japan. The artist has exhibited at private shows through 2021 and 2022.
