Mara Yuki Thøgersen is a 23-year-old danish visual artist. After she graduated from Highschool in 2018 she moved to France to concentrate fully on painting, and in 2020 she moved to Japan after she received the prestigious Studio Kura artist residency. She is currently studying Art at Gerrit Rietvald Academy in Amsterdam. Mara Yuki uses her art as a form of communication, of thoughts and emotions, her own as well as the narrative/narratives in her paintings. Even though her motives often contain people, her aim is not to capture the essence of someone or somebody. When she paints, she aims to capture a moment of something, a feeling, a thought, a context. Mara Yuki is fascinated and inspired by relations and the complexity of the human mind. To communicate all the above mentioned, she works with contrasts in both colors and pencil strokes, light, and materials with a patient eye for details. Mara Yuki had two of her paintings exhibited in a watercolor exhibition at The Museum of Kyoto in 2020, where she received the “Sinjin Showy” Award. Her paintings got selected to represent the exhibition in the magazine “The Window Of Arts” 美術の窓 (May 2020, No. 440).
