“Sincerely Yours,” was the first solo museum exhibition of the multitalented Omiya Ellie, who has attracted attention as a writer, director, and painter. The exhibition featured new works as well as standout pieces from past exhibitions. Full of inherent and unbridled expression, Omiya’s paintings illustrate motifs, both familiar and naturally magnificent, that appeal to visitors’ emotions through their storytelling. “Shopping Street Museum by Ellie Omiya,” which also included several live painting events accompanied by musical performances, ran concurrently in venues across the city, giving audiences a rare and refreshing opportunity to see Omiya create at the intersection of painting and music.
Ellie Omiya (b. 1975, Osaka, Japan) graduated from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Tokyo, and after working in advertising, published a book of essays on daily life. She is also known for her work as a screenwriter, director, radio host, and TV show host.
I’ve painted these pictures as if they were letters, beginning each with “Dear,” and ending it with “Sincerely yours.” I hope that they touch you in some way.
Embrace them in ways that are meaningful to you.
No need to write me back.
See you in Towada!
