|上川紋(1979年東京生まれ。ニューヨーク州ビーコン市在住)

After graduating from the Liberal Art University in Japan in 2001, Uekawa moved to New York to become a contemporary artist and transferred to the City University of New York at Hunter. Two weeks later, 9/11 occurred. In 2004, Uekawa obtained a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, though thought of giving up due to financial reasons, but went on to a master’s program at the school. While in the school, Uekawa started her artist career at Kravets|Wehby Gallery in Chelsea, New York. As a part time student, Uekawa receives MFA from Hunter College, CUNY in 2008. Currently lives and works in Beacon, NY, and shows at Neumann Wolfson Art in Upper East Side, New York.

2001年日本の大学文学部卒業後、現代美術家を目指す為単身ニューヨークへ渡りニューヨーク市立大学ハンター校に編入。2週間後に9/11が発生。その後2004年に学士号美術専攻を取得し、経済的理由から進学を断念する事も考えたが、同校の修士課程へ進学。修学中にニューヨークのチェルシーにあるクラヴェッツ|ウェービー画廊でアーティスト活動を始める。パートタイムとして修学し、2008年にMFAを取得。現在はアッパーイーストにあるニューマン・ウルフソン画廊で活動中。
