Biography / Aiko

Japanese-born street artist Aiko was a founding member New York's FAILE collective until forging a solo career in 2006. Utilising an eclectic and voracious mashup of Japanese and American pop culture, Aiko's works draw further inspiration from the streets of NYC, Japanese Kawaii ("cute") culture, and globalised depictions of female sexuality.

Recognized in the contemporary art world as among the most important artists to emerge in the new millennium, Aiko is also well respected within the global graffiti and street art scene. Her large scale outdoor works grace walls all over the world, and her works have been featured at MOCA LA, Shanghai MOCA China, Brooklyn Museum NY, as well as other major museums and galleries worldwide.
