Japanese ultra-contemporary artist, born and currently lives in Tokyo, Japan.
Her body of work focuses on the unknown potential of each of us as human beings and our evolving spirit towards a new era. Much of her work is inspired by her own interdimensional and subconscious experiences. She seeks to make it a multidimensional expression that works in the realm of human consciousness, by combining physical experience with non-physical mediums.
In recent years, she has been creating interactive installations,and media works using XR, Metaverse and NFT, that emphasise experiences.
Graduated from Kyoto Seika University, Faculty of Art, BFA in painting in 2003. Studied at the Australian National University School of Art & Design, majoring in Gold & Silversmithing as an exchange student in 2001 - 2002. During her student days, she was exposed to a variety of materials and tried her hand at expression through two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and installation works.
After graduating from university, she moved to Germany in 2004 and worked as a graphic designer at a video production company in Dusseldorf. Upon returning to Japan, she worked as a graphic designer then after she started her career as an illustrator in 2010 (under a different name). Her works have been used for the cover of the paperback edition of Sayaka Murata's "Hoshi ga sū mizu" (Kodansha), NHK TV program character design, fashion brand "deep sweet easy", Excel Hotel Tokyu guest room artwork, and stage art etc.
In 2014, she shifted her main focus to artistic activities and began creating mixed media and installations. Currently, she has three series: "SELFVERSE," an experiential installation, "SOUL GEMS," an installation and media art, and "Unknown Power," a mixed media series, which have been shown at art fairs and exhibitions around the world.
