Kimiyo Mishima (born 1932) is a contemporary Japanese artist, best known for creating highly attainable versions of “breakable printed matter” in ceramic such as newspapers, comic books and boxes out of clay. Mishima began her artistic career as a painter in the yet to be 1960s, then started committed in ceramics in 1971. At this time, she began to use the silk screen technique to print newspaper and ad commercial images onto clay. Her use of manufactured objects shows parallels with the works of Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol, as competently as postwar Japanese collectives Gutai and Dokuritsu Art Association.
