Lili Mikami is a Gold Coast (Yugambeh) and Brisbane (Meanjin) based visual artist and art student. Currently completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at QUT, she is passionate about her place in the contemporary arts as an emerging artist. Mikami often delves into issues surrounding identity, and particularly her personal experience growing up as a person of Japanese and Australian descent in a westernised society. To explore and dissect these ideas Mikami uses sculpture, mixed-media and photography. The conceptual exploration of identity is a vital part of her practice, using cultural, sentimental, and traditional items as well as mediums as a point of inspiration.
