Momo Hoshitani

Born in 1989 in Osaka, Japan
Graduated from Kyoto Saga Art College in 2009

Raised in a family where her parents were two different types of painters, Hoshitani’s work is highly polished in miniature drawing techniques, but she does not limit herself to these.
The first thing that catches the eye of Hoshitani’s paintings is the bold color composition of oil pastels and acrylic paint. The playful use of lines and colors is sensitive and optimistic yet harmonizes with the gracefully widened margins to show how cheerful our lives are.

Secondly, the pencil miniatures that capture the wrinkles, moles, and even the frowns of people’s expressions are even more captivating.It loves and affirms that unfiltered people are human, with both beauty and flaws.

Preferring natural texture, Hoshitani often uses paper as a support and sometimes cuts it out or sticks it together to create depth and rhythm. The world created in these works is even musical.

hin

Born in Chiba, Japan
Graduated from Department of Graphic Design, Tama University of Art

HIN’s artistic interest is to explore therapy through Digital Detoxification.
The artist uses pixelated expressions with the intention of “materializing information.” The idea of painting these expressions as if they were sprays or brushes gave birth to a technique she calls Virtual Spray.
She attempts to detoxicate the overload of information from outside and inside.
She has had some solo exhibitions such as “Virtual Spray” in Korea ( LKIF gallery,2022), “Deep paper” in Tokyo ( PAGIC gallery,2021), and participated in art fairs such as “ART OSAKA WALL by APCA” (DMOARTS, 2020), and live-painting (OIL by Bijutsutecho,2020).
As well as exhibiting in group exhibitions in Tokyo, Kyoto, Shanghai, etc.

SUZAKI SEREN

Born in Kumamoto, Japan
Dropout from Tama Art University
Through the experiences of Markinton, which symbolize “who is left behind,” the story depicts encounter and loss, heartbreak and acceptance. There are also other independent stories such as “FRIENDS” and “UFO-chan” that share the same universe, and each character represents the emotions, difficulties, and delicacy inherent in the artist.
