Biography

 

Anne KAGIOKA RIGOULET

Born in 1987 in Kanagawa, Japan, Kagioka completed a BFA in Oil Painting in 2011, followed by an MFA in Mural Painting in 2013, at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts. Kagioka went on to enroll in Fresco and Mosaic at the École Nationale Supérieuredes Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in Paris, and continued her studies in Fresco at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.

Kagioka's interest lies in capturing the ephemeral moment when a familiar landscape transforms into an abstract vision. She incorporates classic techniques used in mural decor such as sgraffito (“to scratch” in Italian) which she acquired when she studied fresco, and expresses the abstract form and the force of nature found in the daily landscape. She also works on producing an integrated space that enfolds the viewers through mural paintings and large paintings.
