Natsumi K. Goldfish is a Brooklyn based Japanese artist born and raised in the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan. Her early environment in Japan was a mix of the urban and the suburban; where the natural world mixed with the city and human nature- this made a lasting impression on her creative output. The dialogue of natural and urban worlds continues to be the central theme of her art. Natsumi’s creations are a pathway to her pushing the boundaries between humanity and nature. In her work, she often incorporates everyday-life or artificial objects and spaces such as bathtubs, fish tanks, specimens, and windows as symbols of human presence. Natsumi moved to the US in 2011 after the Tōhoku earthquake and she finished her BA in Art degree at Tyler School of Art, Temple University (2013), and soon after she moved to New York City. Natsumi had solo exhibitions in Tokyo and New York City, and her work has been included in multiple group exhibitions. Today, Natsumi Goldfish lives and works in New York City. Some of the featured publications and press include Hyperallergic, Alex Inc. START UP (TV Series), OXFORD Magazine (Issue 50), VoyageLA Magazine, CanvasRevel Magazine, Studio Visit magazine, Copelouzos Family Art Museum Commission, and Whitehot Magazine. Awards received: New Artist of The Year Awards at Temple University Japan (2010).
