Video Profile: Yuko Mizobuchi

Yuko Mizobuchi is a Tokyo-based artist. She works primarily with permanent paint markers, watercolour ink, Japanese Sumi and carving on wood board.

She says: “Today, where so much information is flooding our daily lives, perhaps what we need is the imagination to feel and think with new perspectives. I believe that a lack of imagination threatens the peace and creates a world where hatred prevails to the point where we even take the lives of other people.

My works provide one means to rediscover and awaken the memory of human DNA that has been dormant sine ancient times. Art does not require explanation, it communicates with a universal and collective consciousness.”

The work of Yuko Mizobuchi appears in the Artists’ Directory in Issue 78 of Aesthetica. To pick up a copy, visit our shop:
