naomaria is primarily inspired by rock and travel.
Since 2015, she has continued to work on the theme of “human love without any boundaries” based on her own painful past experiences and the world situation she has seen.
naomaria expresses her unique world using beautiful and attractive kimonos that fell in love at first sight.
naomaria’s world is based on the classic rock vibes, such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and Janis Joplin, the bohemian temperament that travels like the wind, and the soul-craving atmosphere of the late 60s and early 70s. They are all exquisitely mixed by naomaria. This is her world view.
The unique world beyond description.
There is freedom, there is warmth, there is Ying-and-Yang.
When naomaria was at a loss, she arrived at “inner thoughts” as a result of investigating the essence of “what is a human being”. She strongly felt that people could become kinder if they looked inward instead of looking outward.
This led to the idea of ”human love without any boundaries“, and became a theme of her entire life’s work.
As you can see from the gallery, naomaria’s work style is not fixed. Making artworks is self-expression itself. This is the result of the fact that the method of self-expression is not limited to one.
She would like you to enjoy the world view of naomaria, which continues to change through various changes.
She is also concerned about the current situation of used kimonos in Japan. She would be happy if naomaria herself could use the kimonos that was disposed of in her work, and that it would be an opportunity for as many people as possible to change their awareness of kimono and use kimonos.
For that reason, she would like to actively hold solo exhibitions and workshops using kimono overseas as well.
