Live Art Performance by JCAT Artists


Colorhythm Risa

Not only in Japan but also in the United States, Britain, Korea, and elsewhere overseas, Colorhythm Risa attracts audiences with her distinctive painting techniques that incorporate the movement of dance.

Her uses of vibrant colors bring power, and her movements that freely incorporate dances of various genres also give color to her performances, captivating and exciting audiences.

Colorhythm Risa uses her hands, sponges – sometimes her entire body – to apply color across the canvas from end-to-end. Her physical and facial expressions of various human emotions and feelings add further layers of depth to her performances.

Hers is a style that, through colors, movements, expressions, and the like, and always without using words, gives exciting performances that are deeply moving to people all over the world, regardless of age or sex, race or nationality. And by presenting an impressive experience of "showing the process of drawing," she all the more strongly delivers her messages to the viewer.

Through her works, Colorhythm Risa wants to connect people and societies, and to make art more accessible to the world while expanding its potential to be more fun and more familiar.


Our “fusion” is a melding of old, and of new, and of things of such different natures, as to create worlds that have never been seen before.

In 2019, the JCAT Fusion【融合】Exhibition will be between July 16th and 27th, Tuesday through Saturday. We’re looking forward to a great show at NOHO M55 Gallery in Chelsea anticipating many visitors as always.

Browse over 100 pieces of innovative new works of art and enjoy the opening parties and live painting performance of our JCAT Artists.

We scout talented artists of all disciplines, spread the word about their talent through our online database and through yearly exhibitions, and open doors of opportunity so each of our artists can pursue their passion and make a living with their talent. We believe that every artist deserves to create a career from what they love to do, and JCAT is here to make that a reality.
