Suzuki Hyotoko is an artist who creates paintings that fuse the present and the past, influenced by the lifestyles, humor, and satirical expressions depicted in ukiyo-e.
With motifs of modern consumer goods such as home appliances and food and drink that change with the times, she has released the “Kadenzu (Household Appliances)” series, which incorporates animation-like dynamism and stories.
In this exhibition, Suzuki Hyotoko will present her latest summer works on the themes of water and music, which she continues to enjoy creating.
In 2003, she entered the Department of Oil Painting, Department of Art and Design at Musashino Art University, graduating in 2007 with a major in Animation. She started her activities under the name Suzuki Hyotoko from her solo exhibition Hyotoko no Hajimari in 2011. In 2013 she won a prize at the “Ringo Bijin Festival.” She then moved to Hyuga City, Miyazaki Prefecture, where she studied Japanese festivals, and now she is back in Tokyo to continue her activities.
