Orecho Honda

Artist / Designer / Picture book author / Gallery4830 Director

My art creation began with the theme to "liberate and transcend the limitations of the self".
The fragments of words, thoughts, and fantasies that emerge from confronting the self become the source of my expression.
And I use the light, stars, glitter, nature, and characters as motifs to sublimate my daily awareness and mindset into my artworks.

I am currently facing the theme of "the multifacetedness of information".
I feel that the world in front of me is depicted by a combination of multifaceted information.
It's like a vast aggregation of Rubik's cubes that keep changing colors from moment to moment.
I create my artworks with a "multifacetedness" captured three-dimensional and an awareness of composition of multiple perspectives and ways of seeing.
It may be an approach similar to one of the concepts of cubism, "multiple perspectives".

I see it as my individuality to have a wide range in the direction of expression depending on the theme and series. Thus and so I hope you enjoy the changes in my artwork too.
