Orecho HONDA

Artist / Gallery4830 Director

1977 Born in Fukuoka, Japan
Graduated from the Fashion Design course at Musashino Art University's Faculty of Spatial and Display Design in Tokyo.

After working as a freelance illustrator and designer, I relocated my production base to my hometown of Fukuoka, where I am now active as an artist. My concept is "The Journey to Self-Transcendence," emerged from the balance between self-denial and self-affirmation. I primarily create paintings that explore the theme of thoughts, words, and fragments of imagination that foster a positive mental attitude.

In the "Glitter of Something Special Series," based on the theme of "We can change the world's colors depending on how we look at it,” I capture the concept of "Glitter" as the core of my expression, and using holographic materials that do not limit color, it is characterized by artworks depicting familiar landscapes and plants.

My artist name "Orecho" (in Japanese, "Ore" means "Yourself" and "cho" means "Go beyond") is a term I coined from the concept of "Going beyond yourself,". It also serves as a word symbolizing my creative attitude and the worldview I aim for.
