Born in 1987 in Aichi.
Matsukawa graduated from Tama Art University in 2011, specializing in oil painting. Her recent exhibitions include Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice (Mori Museum, Tokyo, 2016), Shell Artist Selection (The National Art Center, Tokyo, 2013) and Artist Meets Kurashiki vol.12 Tomona Matsukawa (Ohara Museum of Art, Okayama, 2016). She was a finalist for the Asian Art Award (2017), and was awarded the Fukuzawa Ichiro Memorial Award (2011) and The 25th Holbein Scholarship (2010).
Matsukawa’s distinctive realistic and somewhat dramatic paintings are born from interviews with other women of her generation and the titles and motifs are derived from phrases that were striking during these conversations.
