Paula Nishikawara is a Canadian artist and graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Canada.
Her artistic practice is a sensitive reflection of the world we live in. Nature, the inquiry of life and being human emerge in her aesthetics, materials, colour, technique, genres and subject matter.
From the bold abstraction to the almost fossilized detail of a fish's body, the message of life and what it beholds shines throughout.
Her work has travelled through Australia, Canada, and the USA with the Smithsonian Institute and is in collections in Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia and the USA.
The Fish Prints available here are made using a technique rooted in her Japanese heritage.

We personally guarantee the pieces to be genuine, original and amazing.
