All of Manami Hayasaki’s works are cut from thin black card. She uses the scalpel as other artists might use a pencil, inventing a graphic language of her own as she goes. Many of her pieces are cut from a single sheet.
Manami’s skill is virtuosic, but it is the maturity of her imagination – for an artist in her twenties – that is so arresting. Her subject matter, broadly speaking, is a playful interpretation of humans’ interactions with the natural world.
Manami Hayasaki graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2007. In 2008 she showed in a project space at the London Art Fair.
