    DMOARTS is pleased to present "My Odd Friends," the first solo exhibition of Emi Suzuki at DMOARTS.
    Suzuki has a wild yet sophisticated style, depicting animals and scenes in simple forms on handmade paper that retains a natural texture.
    Her poetic expressions, in which the temperature of living creatures' bodies and even the smell of wild flowers and grasses can be felt, have been accepted, and he has been active mainly in solo exhibitions, including collaborations with fashion brands.
    In this exhibition, we will present works inspired by the stories in our imagination. We look forward to your visit.

    Artist’s statement

    The theme of this exhibition is "strange imaginary friends" and I drew funny creatures.
    Here are some of my friends in my head, a little strange but not hateful.
    For the first time, ceramic works are also available. The earthenware painted on the porcelain
    You will feel the power of the work, which is different from that of two-dimensional works.

    2005 Graduated from Nagoya Zokei University of Art and Design Junior College
