Manami Numata is an artist who specializes in figurative painting. Her art theme is "time and daily life." She creates still life paintings that provoke stories in the viewers’ minds. “I pick up element of these daily objects and put them together to form a story. I draw each art piece as if it were a book cover of each story.” She paints Vanitas with the concept of "Attribution" while adding elements of contemporary symbolism and the meaning she finds in each object. “I aim to create an art piece that combines the classical and modern essence of art.”
