Miho Hirano is a Japanese artist living in Abiko, Chiba. She is a graduate of Musashino Art University. The fantasy world Miho paints is inhabited by ephemeral women who seem to be merging with their environment as their hair flows into flowering tree limbs, bird filled bushes, and drifting seaweed. Not knowing all the cultural significance of the natural world in her paintings makes it hard to truly appreciate her work, but it is easy to fall in love with the wonderful women and world that she has created. Miho Hirano’s work was in a group display at the Jiro Miura Gallery in Japan until August 15, 2015. You can see more of Miho Hirano’s portfolio at HERE, HERE, and on her Facebook page.
