Aya Kakeda

 

Aya Kakeda was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan.  Now she  is based in Brooklyn, NY.  Her work is widely influenced by folk art and folktales, and reflects the current world from her personal perspective.  Similar to the cautionary tales found in folklore, She creates mystical characters and place them in seemingly utopian surroundings that show, with a closer look, a distorted reflection of our own world.

 

She has produced art for gallery, books, products, magazines, posters, and store installations from clients all over the world.  Currently she is exploring sculptures as well as 2D mixmedia work.
