Textile art and design

ABOUT

Hello, I’m Reika.

I make textile art and design, based in Finland and originated in Japan, Osaka.
I express my ideas through textile techniques, materials, and concepts. Literal arts are often my source of inspiration. I contemplate the meaning of the significance and nothingness, visible and invisible, of words and pictures. The words change into forms, materials, and colors through the creative process.
Costume and wearable art is a part of my artistic production. I transform and express the concept through the language of wearable.
My artworks have been seen in Japan, Finland, and European countries.
