2015 Moss Rock Festival Featured Artist

Chiharu Roach is a Birmingham, AL artist known for her “Tangled Hair” portraits of females with animals and insects interwoven in the hair of the subject where each strand of hair is intricately painted with her custom tiny brushes.

Chi was born and raised in Nagoya, Japan and came to Birmingham in 2001 getting her art degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

She uses animals to express the spiritual connection between humans and their range of behaviors and emotions. She paints each hair line as a prayer for her clients, future owners, and a special friend who is not with her anymore.
