Megumi Shauna Arai (b. 1989) is a Japanese-Jewish artist based in New York.  Inspired by piecework traditions, her work involves creating color through natural dye to imbue movement into a static form, invoking both dance and calligraphy brushstrokes and producing an energetic compositional field through the repetitive act of hand stitching.

Arai’s work has exhibited as part of Object & Thing’s At The Noyes House, in collaboration with Mendes Wood DM and Blum and Poe (2020), The Gallery at Stone Barns curated by Object & Thing in collaboration with Stone Barns Center (2021) and  Object & Thing at Madoo : Megumi Shauna Arai and Frances Palmer (2022).
