AYUMI ENDO

A Japanese artist / activist is active around the world.

She has been inspired by activists and researchers such as Martin Luther King 

and Jane Goodall which makes her work cross beyond the border of art.

From an artist's point of view,

she has been thinking about “the power of art and it's possibilities”

and “the role of art within society”

This passion comes from her strong belief 

“Bringing feelings and thoughts to and awakening their hearts and mind

which is somewhat similar to how Picasso painted “Guernica (1937)” as a protest against war.

 

2016

In the midst of the Philippine Presidential Election, she painted a poster of Rodrigo Duterte

(now president of the Philippines)to fight against the black propaganda in the Philippines,

which was widespread across the country at that time.

Since then, she has been participating in social activities such as charity events.

 

2017

She established a project of turning her painting into 3D, for people that are visually impaired.

The presidential palace of Philippine invited visually impaired students from local school

and Ayumi unveiled her new work with them.

This artwork has been donated, and is now exhibited at the Malacanang Palace.

 

2018

She started "Dogen" with world-class dancer, which aims to

“free the heart” by repeating fusion and repulsion on canvas.

She made guerilla creations as the world tour in

Jamaica, New York, Paris, London etc. and held exhibitions in Dublin and Doha.

In Doha (Qatar),

she collaborated the art work with the art students and the autistic children,

and endowed it to Shafallar Center.

2019

When His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hama Al-Thani,

Amir of the State of Qatar paid an Official Visit to Japan,

she endowed him her art work which is included her heart of the hope for peace

and also graced the development of the friendly relations

between Japan and the State of Qatar.

In Singapore,

she held a large scale solo exhibition in an office tower and a hotel.

The exhibition caught the attention of busy people and touched their hearts.

2020

She launched her online store "A&" as a platform to expand her social activity through art.

She started donating money and art to charity organizations

that face various problems with her supporters and purchasers.

2021

She created the work "Gratitude Circle" to express her gratitude to medical workers,

and held a solo exhibition without spectators in nature.

By releasing this work for free, the circle of gratitude is expanding,

and it continues to send encouragement to the people suffering

from the corona disaster and medical workers.

 

“Art becomes one language that transcends language barriers”

 

This is what she has been embodied through her works, and therefore would transcend 

many of the “walls” such as race, religion, age and body, using the medium of art.
