Junko Mizuno


Junko Mizuno born in Tokyo, May 27, 1973. Junko Mizuno is a self-taught artist who is recognized for her unique style of powerful and erotic female imagery. Growing up in Tokyo, Junko’s work is based on '70s Japanese cute culture but her art refuses to be categorized as it keeps growing and she keeps getting inspired by anything that surrounds her.

Her main sources of inspiration include fetish art, folk art, religious art, pin-up art, advertising art, greeting cards, toys, comics, food, music, movies etc. In 1996, she self-produced a photocopy booklet called "MINA animal DX" which brought her to the attention of the publishing industry in Japan. Soon after, she debuted as a professional comic artist and illustrator. Currently residing in San Francisco, she is constantly working on new comics, paintings, illustrations and designs for products ranging from toys to clothing. Her work has been featured in stores, museums, and fine art galleries around theworld.

Junko Mizuno was part of the Popland 1.0 (2020) and 2.0 Exhibition (2021).
