artgallery MAIKA KOBAYASHIの作品集






Danae, a beautiful princess of Argos in Greek mythology with Zeus, who was transformed into a golden rain. Zeus is depicted in the upper section and Danae in the lower section, representing a scene from that story.

It was also my entry in the Nika Exhibition, and it is a work that holds a special place in my own heart, as I objectively saw my painting displayed amongst the many other works. When I think back to those days, many things did not add up for me. I could not allow myself to paint in order to be recognized by someone else, and yet, nothing would start without recognition, so I exhibited this work with mixed feelings. I have loved this work for a long time. It is one of the oldest works in my portfolio, and I was so attached to it that I kept it for a while as a non-sale item.
