Maki Ohkojima’s Murals Spill Off the Canvas in a Beautiful Way

The paintings of Japanese artist Maki Ohkojima cannot — and will not — be contained by a single frame. in her series, The Mural Beyond the Frame, Maki’s murals flow off the canvas, continuing the scene on to the surrounding walls. The practice gives a great sense of life to her art, making her subjects almost seem alive, as if they are not willing to be restrained to the traditional confines of the canvas’ dimensions. And since much of her work deals with nature or children, it wonderfully emphasizes the way they cannot be bound, no matter how much we may attempt to do so. Her murals will flow into any area available, curving around corners, or even up onto a ceiling or down onto a floor. Of course, Maki Ohkojima’s murals will not even be restrained to just this page, so to see the rest from her series, visit her website.
