Enna Konoma was born in Tochio, Niigata in 1985 where she lives and works. She studied Design and Animation at Tokyo Zokei University, and studied at University of West England, Bristol on an exchange program. Working across watercolour, acrylic, ink and mixed media, she has held solo exhibitions in Tokyo and Niigata, and produces designs for fashion, textiles and home wares, as well as graphic designs and illustrations for books, magazines and digital contexts. Enna’s saturated abstractions offer a strong narrative presence. Between wistful descriptions of dreamscapes or fractured maps, there’s a grounded connection to landscape. But, rather than charting topography with precision, Enna communicates lyrical connections and experiences. Her imaginative place-making process is part-fiction part-truth, and an open invitation for exploration.
