Kumi Yamashita was born in Japan and currently lives and works in New York City after having studied in the UK and the USA. Her brilliant artwork has been shown in many different group and solo exhibitions around the world since 1993.
In September 2012, the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. chose Kumi Yamashita’s entry, Constellation – Mana, as a finalist in their Outwin Boochever Portrait Competiton. Just like Yamashita´s other constellation works, the portrait of the artist´s niece was made of a white wooden panel, approximately 10,000 tiny, galvanized nails and a single, unbroken, common sewing thread.
