Artist's Description

Japanese inspired paintings by Nicole Whitty

Geisha paintings featured in Fleurieu Biennale 2008 Australia

Gei Exhibition

Oliver’s Taranga Vineyard Cellar Door
McLaren Vale, South Australia

Inspired by traditional Japanese art I decided to explore the elusive yet beautiful world of being a Geisha.
“Geisha” ( pronounced ‘Gay-sha’ ) means artist in Japanese. The ‘real’ Geisha was not a common prostitute, the first Geishas were men who entertained patrons through artistry. The Geisha evolved into being the role of a woman in Japan, holding the equivalent status to celebrities today for their time.
The different forms of art they performed were tea ceremonies, dancing, calligraphy, painting, music, not to mention they were and still are walking pieces of art. Hence, these amazing iconic figures have inspired paintings with a contemporary edge.
