Kyoko Imazu is a Japanese artist whose practice encompasses a range of mediums such as printmaking, bookbinding, ceramics and installation.
Drawing animals and monsters is one of her earliest and most important memories from her childhood. Her drawings included animals and also strange creatures from Japanese folklores. She was convinced and scared that there were strange creatures lurking behind her or hiding in the dark corners of the house. They were as real as dogs and cats. Drawing inspiration from her memories, her work tells stories that can connect people with their own personal memories and stories.
