This summer, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will be presenting work by Japanese artist Ayako Rokkaku (1982) in an exhibition entitled ‘Colours in My Hand’.

Ayako Rokkaku (1982) lives and works by turns in Tokyo, Berlin and Amsterdam. Every day for three weeks, she will be working on an ‘artwork in progress’. Exclusively for the Kunsthal, Rokkaku will be painting large murals, or ‘live paintings’, which she creates by applying acrylic paint directly to the canvas with her fingers. She shares with the public her very own world of bright colours and recurring symbols such as flowers, animals, boats and houses. A recurrent theme in her work is that of little girls with large eyes and long arms that she often portrays in close-up. Everyone can join in with Ayako as she paints at the Kunsthal. More info here.
