Fantasy Art by Japanese Artist Miho Hirano

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 is in a group display at the Jiro Miura Gallery in Japan until August 15, 2015.  Thanks to Hi-Fructose.  You can see Miho Hirano’s portfolio at mihohirano.strikingly.com

Miho Hirano’s delicate portraits of young goddesses are in and of nature, adorned by pastel flowers, butterflies, and humming birds. They stand blissfully as slender tree branches wrap them in love and color, or wade neck high in a shallow river. We are immediately reminded of “Flora,” represented in Botticelli’s “Allegory of Spring”, a profusion of flowers coming out of her mouth.
