Kay Watanabe is a Japanese visual artist in Brisbane, Australia, with her main medium being printmaking. She also draws and paints, and create sculptures.
Kay actively exhibits in shows and art fairs in Japan, Australia and internationally. Her works were selected for numerous shows and she was awarded various awards and commendations.
Often Kay’s artworks are themed around humanity’s relationship, both amongst themselves and with their environment. The themes of nature, natural disasters, environmental issues, conflict, and political and social situations are often seen in her works. She frequently chooses plants and planets as her motif, as she becomes more humble about a human being’s relationship with their surroundings. She focuses on the beauty of nature, which amazes people and, which, at the same time, might make them feel humble, spiritual and possibly scared.
Kay also teaches printmaking at various organisations, is passionate about promoting art, and has extensive experience in curating exhibitions and organizing art classes.
