Chiharu Hayashi was born in Japan. When she was seven years old, she started learning
about Japanese Calligraphy. Since then, she has been building up her love of brushwork and
developing her ideas and skills in arts. She completed her degree in International Cultural
Studies at Kyoritsu Women’s University in Tokyo, Japan. Currently, she is taking a post-
secondary program in Visual and Digital Arts at the Humber Institute of Technology and
Advanced Learning. She has exhibited in various art shows in Toronto and been working from
her downtown studio.


The beauty of nature is an abundant source of inspiration for Chiharu’s paintings. She is
interested in discovering the spiritual side of beauty and fascinated by capturing the moment
she experiences an “epiphany” in nature, she interprets the feeling into her pieces. Her concept of abstract floral paintings is hybrid of North American and Japanese culture. In her brush stroke, she uses Japanese Calligraphy skills and combines them with a palette knife techniques she learned in Canada. During her stay in Canada, Chiharu realized that she should appreciate the richness of her cultural background and wanted to introduce an aspect of Japanese culture into her pieces and blend it with the Western tradition.
