ACO Artist Discussion with Melissa Ichiuji presented by J. Jordan Bruns

By April 16, 2023May 5th, 2023No Comments
Melissa Ichiuji creates figurative sculptures and performances that are stunningly confident, bold, aggressive, playful, and original. They are full of sexual puns and possible allusions to larger traditions of Surrealist and contemporary works. Her dance experience enables her to relate to the body in a unique way and for her, the body and the creative act are always connected.
Her art explores themes relating to female empowerment, eroticism, and the fragility of the human condition. She has exhibited in museums and galleries in Paris, Brussels, Munich, Berlin, NYC and Washington DC. Her work has been featured in Art in America, Modern Luxury, Art Investor, NYART, Textiel Plus, The Washington Post, and the book 100 Artists of Washington DC.
