The World of Yoko Sueyoshi

top


When I stopped by a store called Loft a couple months ago, there was an art event going on called Pop Box. It's an annual event where each artist has a small box (=booth) to display his/her artworks inside the store. I was especially captivated by one of the boxes...
毎年ロフトで開催されているアートのイベント、ポップボックス。たまたま寄ったときに開催されていて、思わず立ち止まったボックス。


















The artist's name is Yoko Sueyoshi. I am in love with the world she creates and am enchanted by the boys and girls that appear inside her artwork. The children in these pictures aren't just innocent; I feel like there's a lot hidden inside their expressions. Wouldn't you love to slip into this world? The scenery is breathtaking.
彼女の名前は末吉陽子さん。末吉さんの世界観がすごく好きで、こんなところに住んでみたいと思った。純粋だけどどこか不思議な表情をしている男の子と女の子たち。お話してみたくなります。

I had the chance to see her at a live painting and it was incredible to see her works come to life. She was a lovely person, just like her artwork.
ライブペイントを見る機会があったんですが、とにかく見とれてしまいました。終わったあとには葉書にサインをしてくださって、とても素敵な方でした!

For more of her artwork, here's the website (go look at more lovely drawings!) and she has an exhibit, POP SPACE (which I think is similar to Pop Box) going on right now. Details are below, those who are in Tokyo should definitely go have a look!
