“From a single image, spaces, products, and words emerge.”
Maki Kahori, a graphic artist who is based in Tokyo, quickly rose to success with her wide-range of daring artworks, which spans from videos to different kinds of digital media. Her skills have created sensual worlds which are stimulating and captivating. She starts off from her 2D drawings and expands them into installations which include light and space. Through time, these visual moving images are often made into a purposeful product. She believes in “creating unlimited forms of art from one idea.”
Kahori’s works are mostly inspired by the energies of plants and human beings, and apart from working alone after studying Fine Arts in New York and graduating from the Department of Design in Nihon University, she has been collaborating with a lot of other artists and companies around the world. With names such as Apple Inc., Adobe Systems Inc, Chanel x Vogue, COMME des GARCONS on her clients list, as well as magazines such as Harper’s BAZAAR, IdN, Numero and Dazed & Confused; it is evident that she is as influential in the art world as she is in the high fashion world.
This year, in hands with Masaki Yamazaki and Maya Shibuya, they have created a series of textile design products, which along with 6 other artist’s works, are now available for sale at kapok until the 19th of March, 2017.
