Madoka Kinoshita

015Madoka is a Japanese artist living in Osaka. Her main subject matter is people in manga styled paintings. The people don’t appear to be anyone in particular but rather just tropes of manga characters. The heads and eyes are massive in comparison to the rest of her body. What makes her style so unique is how solid her color is. It looks like a digital drawing printed on canvas. In order to get the crispness of lines she masks off areas, working one color at a time. She will then peel off the tape and tape off a new section. The labor of love produces wonderfully graphic paintings. She updates her YouTube channel with current projects and shows you her process.

She exhibits her work a couple times a year around Japan. Most shows seem to take place in Osaka and Tokyo. She sells original pieces, books, prints, and some novelty products on her website.
