Marin Murakoshi is a Japanese artist living and working in the U.S. She grew up in one of the oldest small villages of Ishigaki island, Okinawa, Japan. Before moving to Boston in 2016, she lived in Osaka, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. Over the years, she focused on direct-carving of wood and stone. She creates figurative and semi-abstract forms through carving and often let the material take its own shape. Her work explores nuances and elements of human emotion, the love and affection in human relationships and fleeting moments in life. In the recent years, she has put efforts on participating in The Sculpture Symposium around the world.
