Born in Japan and raised in the Bay Area, Maya Fuji is inspired by both her cultural heritage as well as the local microcosms of the SF Bay Area. She is fascinated by themes of traditional Japanese mythology and folklore, and blends these with her own experiences of being issei (first generation) in the United States. Soft feminine figures float through her work, encompassing abstraction, texture, vulnerability, and mystique. She layers pops of color and shape to explore her relationship to the passing of time, and to contemplate hidden meanings in the lore of her ancestors. Each piece has a story to tell—historical legends, lessons and ghost stories of the floating world era, reimagined through the lens of the digital age.


Artwork is ready to hang on the wall; hanging wire secured on back (nail and hook needed). Dust with a microfiber cloth to clean.
