Kyoko Imazu is a Japanese artist based in Melbourne, Australia whose practice encompasses a range of mediums such as printmaking, puppetry and installation, bookbinding and ceramics.
Drawing small animals and strange creatures from Japanese folklore called ‘Yokai’ is one of her earliest and most important memories from her childhood. It has continued to play vital roles in her art practice.
Her works take audience to secret hiding spots unveiling her childhood memories and imagination. Her characters and visual stories evoke many states of life, death and regeneration. Her characters in magical, imaginary worlds present a view where “each dust particle has its own universe”.
