Collection: Geisha

Behind the veil of mystery and elegance of Japan's geishas lies a world of sacrifice and silent struggle. At the crossroads of tradition and modernity, these elite artists embark on a journey that demands unparalleled dedication. However, they are not alone in their quest to stand out in a society deeply rooted in strict gender roles. From legendary figures like Tomoe Gozen to the anonymous women of their time, all faced similar challenges in a Japan where art and beauty were currency. In my artworks, I attempt to unveil the hidden challenges and complex realities that shape the world of geishas and the enigmatic and courageous role of women in Japanese history and culture, a world where art and suffering intertwine in a delicate balance.
