Profile of the Artist:

Akira Murata (Japanese, b. January 1955)

“As a child,  growing up in Koriyama City, Fukushima, he loved nature in all its beauty, and was happy to be outdoors in the lush nature that surrounded his home. He also very much enjoyed  arts and crafts, creating with his hands, throughout his early years.  After completion of his general schooling, Murata attended Tokyo Zokei University, but left to pursue a more creative career in design. He graduated from Nihon Designer College, specializing in fashion. During this period he won many distinguished awards for his designs including the Grand–Prix NDS Japan Fashion Illustration 1977. Although he was a successful  businessman, managing a fashion goods company in Tokyo, his innate passion for painting inevitably drew him back to the canvas.

Although his subjects vary, many of his  paintings are  inspired by the natural surroundings of his home town and by the great Impressionists, Monet, Degas and Renoir.

Since devoting himself to his art, Murata continues to exhibit in both  Tokyo and Paris with numerous  successful exhibitions  for his oils, pastels and water colors.

Murata has always dreamed of owning his own building dedicated to the arts. It would be a place where art lovers and collectors could gather. In June of 2009 his dream,  “Vasenoir” was completed. On entering the building, you can find  his personal atelier (studio) and a charming Parisian style café. The second floor of the building houses a large ballet studio.

Akira Murata is in private collections worldwide and 2012 marked the year his superb art became available for acquisition in the United States.”

As Artist-in-Residence in Australia!

We would like to think that we will give Mr Murata the freedom of our gorgeous Sunshine Coast – to explore and be inspired for some of the 10 Days of his Art Residency.  We will take him to the hinterland and also to the coastal beaches to absorb the colours and unique flora and fauna of our Australian coastline!

Mr Murata will bring to the Sunshine Coast a whole new series of ‘Pastels’ and techniques for you to explore – overlaying his specially designed and created Japanese ‘Jesus’ Pastels onto water colour based images allows him to create a multi layered depth to his works on paper!
