Yuki Sakaguchi

Brooklyn NY USA
I am a painter, illustrator, graphic designer specializing in spiritual aesthetics. I was born and lived in Japan, but in 2012, I moved to New York to reconsider what my life was abandoning my twenty year career as an actress and ten year carrier as a graphic designer. On November 2012, I stopped by the Art Students League of New York and felt so nostalgic when I came in the building. Two months later, I got into the school and started to learn painting from Ronnie Landfield. At the end of 2013, I remembered a book that I bought in Japan and had not read yet. On opening the book, I was astonished because the book said, “This is a letter for the students of Art Students League”. I believe the book “The Art Spirit by Robert Henri” brought me to the school. When I paint, it seems like that someone is using my hand. I think Art influences people's subconsiousness and let them know how mystical our lives are. For me, Art is a conversation with God.
