Philadelphia, PA

Michele Kishita is a Philadelphia-based artist, who uses landscape as her primary subject. Her paintings are strongly influenced by the graphic stylizations and compressed spaces of Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Kishita’s paintings are in a number of private/corporate collections, including Toyota, Capital One, and Kaiser Permanente, and her work is featured in Create Magazine, on the Poetry Foundation blog and Studio Break podcast, as well as in several literary journals. She has participated in artist residencies in New Mexico, Russia, and Iceland and exhibited at the Sharjah Art Museum in the United Arab Emirates and the Museum of Non-Conformist Art in St. Petersburg, Russia. Kishita received both her BFA and MFA in painting from the University of the Arts and is represented by Edgewater Gallery, James Oliver Gallery, The Drawing Room Gallery, and Carrie Coleman Fine Art.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"My paintings are the result of a collaboration between me and the wood panel. The wood grain dictates the imagery, and I interpret the story or the scene that the wood grain is trying to tell or show. It is far more interesting for me as an artist to discover as I paint rather than dictate."
