Japanese ultra-contemporary artist, born and currently works 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 unconsciousness.
Her primary mode of expression is through installations that emphasize on physical experience. Recent works include "SELFVERSE", an experiential light installation work, and "SOUL GEMS META", an evolutionary project incorporating metaverse, VR, and NFT.
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.
In 2004 she moved to Germany and worked as a graphic designer at a video production company in Dusseldorf. Upon returning to Japan, 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, this accumulation established her unique artistic expression, and she began to create works using various media as an artist.
In 2021, she presented "SELFVERSE," an experiential installation work of light. In the same year, she began to work on projects incorporating NFT, Metaverse, VR, and generative AI, expanding the scope of her activities.
Her recent exhibitions include "NFFT2023 Generative AI New Future Fashion x Technology" (SHIBUYA PARCO, Tokyo, 2023), "MUSIC IS・SELFVERSE" (Art Yī, Brussels, 2023), “Beautiful World” Exhibition (Kawamura Noh-Theater, Kyoto, 2022), " SELFVERSE: Sparkling Heart (CONTEXT Art Miami, 2022), and "SOUL GEMS META" (Gallery G-77, Kyoto, 2022).
