Intro
Miki Asai's aesthetics and concept are strongly based on the Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in impermanence.

Artist list

Miki Asai
My work is based on the Japanese philosophical concept called Wabi-sabi, which means finding beauty in imperfection, transience and the ephemeral. 
I read a book on the subject that said, ‘things are beautiful because they are fleeting.’
