Minami Kobayashi (b.1989 Japan) is a Japanese artist currently living and working in New York City. She makes figurative  eggtempera paintings which combine intimacy and mystery through their depictions of ordinary people, animals, and places that seem vaguely surreal and ever so slightly off-kilter. She has had solo exhibitions at Goldfinch (Chicago) and Baby Blue Gallery (Chicago) and has exhibited in group shows at Chautauqua Institution (New York), Western Exhibitions (Chicago), Jeannievent Gallery (London), Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, 3331 Arts Chiyoda (Tokyo), and numerous other venues. Kobayashi’s work has been featured in publications such as New City (review, February 2019), Artmaze magazine, Saatchi Art (Invest in Art Report 2018) and Frase Got Talent. Upcoming exhibitions and projects will be held at Kate’s little angel (Los Angeles), Setouchi International Triennale 2019 (Japan), and Dongdaemun Design Plaza (South Korea).  She holds an MFA in Painting and Drawing from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago (2018) and a BFA in Painting from Tokyo University of the Arts (2016). Kobayashi is represented by Goldfinch, Chicago. Find more of her work at
