I first came across Chiho Aoshima in Drop Dead Cute, a book that showcased the work of ten cutting edge female Japanese artists. Aoshima is a part of the Kaikai Kiki co, an artists collective funded by Takashi Murakami. Her work is characterised by her use of demons,ghosts and zombies and bright colours. They’re delightfully dark and the characters in her work endearing. It’s the details that really get me, like skulls in the roots of a tree bunnies hopping out a girls mouth. Whenever I see her stuff I’m always heavily cheered up.
