Rika Nagahata | NZ Artist

Kitsune by Rika Nagahata

Experimental and contemporary techniques merge with traditional Japanese art in the work of Wellington artist Rika Nagahata.

Inspired by New Zealand’s unique wildlife, children's book illustrations and traditional Japanese art, Rika’s work contains exquisite patterns and fine lines rendered in watercolour and ink. The inclusion of these details has evolved from Rika's background in printmaking.

Born in Osaka, Rika studied at the Osaka Art University where she graduated with a major in printmaking. In 2008 she settled in Wellington and began developing the style she has become known for.

Rika’s work can be found in a select number of galleries across New Zealand and in private collections both here and in Japan.
