starting 11 Jan 2019


Aiko was born in Tokyo, Japan. Since the middle of the 1990s, she has lived and worked in New York City. Influenced by her cultural background and her life in the USA, Aiko connects contemporary American art movements like Pop Art and graffiti with traditional Japanese art and aesthetics. Exploring narratives of women, her murals playfully interrogate the femininity, sexuality and beauty of human life. Beyond this, her work unites western and eastern culture. Within the contemporary art scene, Aiko is considered one of the most important artists of the new century.

In the male dominated graffiti and street art scene, she is widely accepted as an important artist contributing to the visibility of women in society. Aiko is mostly requested for the design of large outdoor walls. The Wynwood-project in Miami and the historic “Keith Haring wall” in the artistic center of New York are among her most well-known outdoor pieces.

Aiko’s artworks can be seen in the MUCA Art Lounge (1st floor) from the 11th of January 2019.
