Mitamura Ariyoshi

PhD|Associate Professor

Graduate School Arts Studies, Kyoto University of the Arts. He is the tenth generation in a line of Edo maki-e artists (lacquer artists who specialize in sprinkled gold techniques), so he was exposed to lacquer from a very young age. His family had him ingest the raw resin from an early age to develop immunity, and he made works of engraved lacquer (chinkin) when he was still in primary school. After graduating from Japanese high school, he studied in China at the Tsinghua University Academy of Arts & Design, where he focused on metal works, ceramics and Chinese language and crafts history. After obtaining his doctoral degree, he taught lacquer history in China before 2018, when he returned to Japan to focus on his career as an artist. Since then, he made many smaller and larger sized lacquer sculptures in the ‘dry lacquer’ technique and exhibited at several contemporary crafts exhibitions, including Nitten (Japan Fine Arts Exhibition), for which he received several awards. Whilst making his own works, he continues to do research and contribute to international exchange.
