Aya Kakeda – New York, New York – www.ayakakeda.com
Aya likes cats, seals and receiving postcards and she has ever changing weekly obsessions.
Tell me about yourself (What kind of artist are you and where are you based out of)
My name is Aya Kakeda, I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan. Now I live and work in Brooklyn, New York. I like to explore many theories on a lot of things. When I’m not indulging in my obsessions, I paint and draw, creating my own whimsical narratives.
What is your favorite medium to work with?
Embroidery, gouache, brush pen, and silkscreen.
What are you trying to convey with your work?
I usually draw what’s happening at ToTai Island and the creatures who live there. ToTai Island is an imaginary island that I live half of my time since I was little.
What would you consider a fun night out?
Good food, good friends and good unplanned surprises!
