Chiho Aoshima

Using Bezier curves, Chiho Aoshima creates extraordinary worlds populated with ghosts, zombies, and teenage girls.

Debuting in the art scene with no formal art training, Chiho Aoshima’s work transcends traditional techniques of representation.  Aoshima uses computer software to create beautiful and erotic worlds of ghosts, demons, schoolgirls, and exquisite natural landscapes. 

Her work is printable on any surface; from canvas bags to giant wallpaper installations.  “My work feels like strands of my thoughts that have flown around the universe before coming back to materialize,” Aoshima states. 

Aoshima’s work has garnered international renown with a number of high profile projects.  She collaborated with Issey Miyake in 2003, with her artwork featured in the spring/summer collection. 

In 2004, she was invited to participate in the 54th Carnegie International at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, where she unveiled her largest wallpaper piece to date, measuring 106 feet (32.5m ) in length by 15 feet (4.8m ) in height.  In May 2005, as part of the Little Boy project, her ecologically-themed “City Glow” and “Paradise” series covered ad spaces throughout the Union Square subway station in New York, greeting commuters as they passed. 

In a solo show in 2005, Aoshima presented both her first sculptural work and a 5-screen 7-minute animation piece.
