About The Artists
Chiho Aoshima?murals feature birds, flowers, ghosts, and demons colorfully infused with traditions of Japanese comics, animation, and landscape painting. Though deeply informed by art histories, this fantasy world of desire and terror is rooted in the technological future through its 21st century vocabulary and computer generated form. For her Artpace project Aoshima continues an interest in mortality with her first wall-mounted watercolors, reflecting the spirit of San Antonio?iconic landscape.
