Be Inspired: Naomi OkuboThursday, February 6, 2014
Naomi Okubo's paintings are out of this world. The vivid colors, detailed textures, and characters had me at first glance. Her work focuses on society's desire for expression through fashion and image influenced by the media. You can find more of her works here.
"Although people do not need to concern about how they can get food and where they can find out housing, they focus on what they should wear in and how others see their appearance everyday. With the changes over time, people have generated a society that visual images like mass media and fashion are significant. It has caused many social issues. Especially, "fashion" is an important tool for transmitting the images. In recent my works, I focus the society through the fashion."
