ABOUT

Yumiko Ono

 

Born in Kobe, Japan.
After completing BA in Kyoto Seika University, Ono completed her MA in the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, as well as Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design, and also studied in Hungary and Israel with the government scholarship in each country. Currently Ono works in the field of contemporary art world widely.

 

The theme of Ono's work is utopia and she combines various architecture, which she found on her research to create fictive architecture by using anti architectural materials such as drawings on tracing paper, slip cast porcelain and textile.
