Ciou‘s vibrant, mixed-media works, with a sensibility labeled as “necro-kawai,” are collected in a new show at KochxBos Gallery in Amsterdam. The works in “The Inner Land Part 1” blend ink and acrylics on paper, with her signature characters in wildly active scenes. The show runs from March 24 through April 14 at the gallery. Ciou last appeared on HiFructose.com here.
A statement offers some insight on what inspires her: “Her influences are diverse: the American vintage culture from the ’30s to the ’70s, the Victorian style and the European Barocco too. However, she is focused on the Japanese culture and Japanese traditional and contemporary art. Her style is characterized by a line of great expressive force and a language where the power of color and deformation of shapes combine to make her stroke unmistakable.”
