Kyoko Yamaji is the first japanese artist to take part to our project Art4Kids. Our Worldwide P.R. (Domenico La Ferla) got in contact with this artist to thank her personally. She replied: “It’s me to thank you for the wonderful project. I would be happiest if I can do something for others as an artist. I would love to do something for disadvantaged children and young people in conditions of underdevelopment, war, poverty or natural disaster. I trust you, the professionals for the operation because I can’t do anything by myself. Also, the founder of S4K was an artist, so I feel an affinity with S4K“.
Other artist and known personalities who have already supported the goal and mission of Siva for Kids Foundation are: Lucio Parrillo,¬†the young upcoming marvel-artist from Italy, Marina Varouta,¬†the young upcoming artist from Germany,¬†Bombay Rockers, the world famous boyband of Denmark, ¬†PadmaShri Hariharan, a very respected personality¬†of Indian classical music and¬† play back singer of Indian films industry and Martin Joergensen, who is a¬†professional (FC Fiorentina) football personality¬†of Denmark.
Kyoko is a well-known artist in Japan, where she collected many awards. Since 2002, she is taking part to International Art Fairs and Group Shows. She describes herself with some simple words full of emotions: “I’m a self-taught artist, born and brought up mostly in Tokyo, Japan and in the United States for a short time. I have been an art lover since my early age, but I didn’t feel like painting until I was strongly influenced by African charm. Traveling to mid eastern Africa was a precious experience in my life. I gained enthusiasm from the beauty, toughness and love of human beings and wild animals.
¬†I also paint images inspired by music, movies, and also from my own experience or sympathy to others. Recently I was again strongly influenced by the warmth and cheerfulness of Caribbean people, especially “the happiest people in the world” in Puerto Rico. My theme and style may change along the way, meeting people, traveling, how I feel, and such. Anyway, I am pursuing to express touching feelings, scenes and impressions in my style”.
Through her words, we can also feel the colours of her art. She describes the feeling regarding the artwork “Into The Light” available in our Shop4Kids: “This is what I felt in Africa. I couldn’t do anything. I wished to bring naked children in the street to a world where there is no sorrow, no hunger and no fear, a beautiful place filled with love and peace”.
We are proud to welcome an emotional artist like Kyoko and we invite other artists like her to join our project Art4Kids.
