Hikari Shimoda plunged into the contemporary fine art world after completing her studies in illustration at the prestigious Kyoto Saga University in Japan. She is enormously inspired by Japanese pop culture which provides a spark for both the elements of frivolity and horror that dominate her work. Through her frequent use of children as motifs, she openly explores the struggles and aspirations faced by adults in modern society.
From Miami to Tokyo, Milan and New York, Shimoda has been enchanting the global gallery scene since 2008.
