Miho Tanaka was born in the Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan on February 10, 1998. After studying sculpture at the Musashino Art University in Tokyo, in 2020 she moved to Naples to continue her artistic career at the Academy of Fine Arts, earning an academic diploma in Sculpture. In Naples she began to have a relationship of discovery towards the places she travels; this new approach to research also brought about changes in the use of materials.
Tanaka experiments with the classic materials of sculpture, often accompanying herself with waste materials found during urban explorations, which she calls walks, passeggiate.
In 2022, she exhibited at Palazzo Monti (Brescia) on Degree Show 3, an award dedicated to emerging artists. Other significant exhibitions: The National Art Center, Tokyo (2020); MABOS Art Museum of the Bosco della Sila (2021); Ex Bourbon Prison, Avellino (2022), Exit Strategy – art interference in public space, Art Days Napoli – Campania.
She is currently engaged in a research project on the banks of the Volturno River, guest of the interdisciplinary project OhAhSi! Sul fiume fuori rotta, in which she took part by presenting her first performative work Prima che faccia buio in October 2022 and she is also engaged in the production of a site-specific work for Quartiere Latino – condominium museum at km 0 (Naples).
