Elysha Rei

Australian Artist

Elysha Rei is a Japanese-Australian visual artist whose work draws upon her mixed heritage and transition between places, cultures and communities.  With a curiosity to examine her identity within a Japanese aesthetic, Rei’s work uses symbolic animals, plants and patterns. By placing these natural elements within new environments, she aims to question notions of ‘tradition’ and attachment to ‘place’, creating visual interpretations of her cross-cultural experiences. Rei’s work includes paper cutting, portraits and public art installations, which have been exhibited across Australia and internationally over the past 12 years.
