Chie Nakano

A contemporary realistic painter, Chie was born in Japan and later moved to Madrid to study academic drawing and painting under the tuition of Eduardo Peña Nuñez at the Artium Peña Academy. In order to move forward with classical and structured approach, she joined Amaya Gurpide and Jordan Sokol’s atelier focusing on figure drawing and painting. During this time, she gained strong technical knowledge and was exposed to the 19th-century old masters who became an inspiration on developing her current style. Presently living in Dubai, she focuses on portraiture and still life highlighting the natural essence and narrative of the subjects. Chie was an Associate Member of Tashkeel during 2019.
