Chiho Iwase

Artist Biography

Chiho Iwase was born in Japan, currently lives and works in London.

​She studied Fine Art/Sculpture at Chelsea College of Art & Design (University of the Arts London) after she had training in drawing and painting in Japan.

Iwase’s work covers painting, drawing, illustration, sculpture, and installation. Her sculptures contain the quality of monstrosity and cuteness, which refers to her inner conflict and immaturity hidden in adulthood.

She recently focuses on painting and drawing, that reflects animistic thoughts in Japanese culture. Her current works include portraits showing 'human as a part of nature’ and 'anthropomorphised natural spirits’.
