Sera Kodama Creates Paintings of Whimsy and Wonder

Filled with a purity of emotion and an elegant sensitivity to color and form, Sera Kodama’s paintings celebrate the act of discovery and creation with an emphasis on happiness and harmony.

With their vividly bright and lively scenes, Kodama’s art brims with a whimsical joy and innocence, as her curious characters engage viewers in their appealingly fresh narratives. The paintings’ vividly embellished imagery is visually inspired by the artist’s travels through Mexico, and contains an appealing childlike wonder for the natural and spiritual world. Kodama creates her works in acrylic paints on paper, pairing wide expanses of bright pigments with smooth and considered brushstrokes to condense and flatten space along a two-dimensional plane as she draws on the cultural influences of traditional and contemporary Japanese art.
Born in Tokyo, Japan and now living in nearby Saitama-ken, Sera Kodama studied at Tama Art University in the Department of Graphic Design. In addition to exhibiting her art in Tokyo to wide acclaim, she has published several titles and has built a successful career in illustration and graphic design.
