Biography

Misaki Kawai’s practice runs the gamut of media, taking shape on canvas, in freestanding sculpture, on wall-mounted papier-mâché constructions and on the smiling pet rocks she sells on her website. Regardless of medium, Misaki’s work gently but incisively prods at the bizarre minutiae of contemporary culture, lampooning it with a disarming sweetness. Born in Osaka, Japan and currently based in New York, NY, Misaki’s work has been included in two recent shows at the Hole, Post-Analog Painting and Early Man. Her work has also recently been included at group shows at Salon 94 in Manhattan and Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton, both in the summer of 2015.
