“ANZ” ANZ KANIE 20th anniversary Exhibition
Mar. 29 (Thu.) to Apr. 4 (Wed.)

Kanie started her carrier as a dry point and mixed media artist.
This is a memorable year since her first exhibition was 20 years ago.

- Willowy, stretched lines with impressive brilliant colors.
- Familiar and comfortable as if wrapped up in a blanket.
- A lingering sense of transience, reminiscent of cherry blossoms.
- It has strength and kindness evoking the sun and moon.

Kanie's art talks to you, bringing up memories from the bottom of your
heart while charming you at the same time.

We hope you will enjoy Kanie's new arts and her world.
