Lady Aiko, Sweetheart Bunny 3, 2016

I admire the work of Lady Aiko
The name of this street artist means ‘love’ in Japanese and that’s exactly what she is intend to give us via her art, and this, anywhere she works, from Tokyo to New York passing by the poor quarter of Kliptown in South Africa.
Her varied artworks (in the street, but also in prints, canvases, videos…) are beautifully colourful, a sort of mix of eastern and western pop culture with sometimes traditional Japanese prints with a feminist twist.
And how not to fall for her rabbits holding an aerosol paint ???

If in London, you may see some of her work on sale at the excellent Lazarides Gallery until the 24th March!!
Pictures from Arsty and here also… and Kumi Contemporary
