The Divine Gas

If Takashi Murakami had an imaginative little daughter who would she be? How would she draw? Perhaps she would be like one of the girls in Chiho Aoshima's paintings. Born in 1974 in Tokyo, Japan, Chiho Aoshima uses computer technology to create beautiful, imaginary fantasy worlds. She uses the 'superflat'movement, a term coined by artist Takashi Murakami where the style is typified by the simple and emphatically two-dimensional forms. You'll often find such elements as bodily fluids, reptiles, insects, and old, concrete buildings in her work. I like how she describes her creative process. “My work feels like strands of my thoughts that have flown around the universe before coming back to materialize." - Chiho Aoshima.
