Pictures drawn by Mari Nishimura are often described as "powerful". She doesn't just draw a b asic rough sketch, but instead, using her hands and fingers,she is inspired to paint it in layers.Having been very fond of dragons since childhood, she has enjoyed painting them.She says, "The dragons I know are gentle, precious, and beautiful.I would like to paint dragons never seen before in the world".Beneath the happiness overflowing in life, underlies suffering, sadness, and sorrow...She desires to depict all profound emotions in her paintings.Because her pictures represent such human emotions, those who see her work are moved to tears, and praise them for the outbursts of the soul.Mari Nishimura's works, incorporating Japanese style elements as well as contemporary aspects, reach out to the whole world along with her "dragons".
