Where is Chiho Aoshima?

If you live in London and travel on the Piccadilly line at all, you may remember a few years back there was a wonderful installation at Gloucester Road Underground Station (This rather good montage is by Owen Billcliffe)

Entitled City Glow, Mountain Whisper, it was designed and created by Chiho Aoshima, a young self taught Japanese artist who takes inspiration as much from traditional Japanese scroll paintings as she does from animé, creating brightly coloured landscapes populated by full of zombies, teenage girls and ghosts…

Chiho produces her work mostly via computer, creating large scale images that often form part of a larger installation (as at Gloucester Road). She describes her work as feeling “like strands of my thoughts that have flown around the universe before coming back to materialize”.

Despite some seemingly quite large scale exhibitions in America, Canada and here in the UK, I must say I’m struggling to find anything on line about her or her work after 2008…

I hope this means that nothing has happened to her, the world needs more dreamers that can produce work as beautiful as this……

      Hi there
      It has never been my intention to steal or use images uncredited. As you can see, I credited Owen’s work, so apologies for overlooking Kumi Contemporary.
      I have now amended the post to include your site address.
      I hope this is OK, but let me know if not.
