Janai-Ami

  • 9/11 Artist JANAI-AMI at the International Exhibition

    NOVEMBER 27,  JAPAN:

    The 19th JAPAN International Art Exhibition and Competition, curated by Katsu Shimmin. At the National Art Center of Tokyo. Opening on November 27, 2019 as seen in ART IN AMERICA and ARTILLERY MAGAZINES (November 2019). This is the largest International Exhibition/ Competition of its kind in 2019.

    Janai-Ami, who began painting in response to 9/11 and had no formal training as a fine artist, returns in the style that made her known with her initial 3, 047 unique contemporary floral paintings in memory of the victims of 9/11.  

    Her debut at an International Art Auction in Los Angeles (featured on Paddle 8) in August 2019 proved that her passionate florals are even more sought after today, so much so that even her non-original work is commanding high prices with a Limited Edition print  of ENCHANTED selling in the thousands.

    The TOKYO MUSEUM show will be the first showing of an original in several years. The artist rarely parts with her originals anymore. This time the artist's pain of loss will once again be translated into a beautiful rendition of remembrance as noted parenthetically in the title "In Memory of Sam." The work is called "BELONGING." The artists ability to turn her heartache into something beautiful and translate that raw emotion, passion and love into an image, is provocative.  She has asked that the invitation to the Opening be extended to all members of the Harvard and Harvardwood community that are living in or visiting Tokyo in November/ December.
