ShojonoTomo Profire Image

ShojonoTomo, as its name suggests “Friend Of The Child” in Japanese, is an artist who draws on theme of souls of “eternal children”.

Gaining a reputation through exhibiting not only paintings and three-dimensional objects, but also interactive art works such as “Marry Me Socks”, a wedding for a sock lost the other pair, and “Kimutakunology” incorporating mobile phone technology to create a telephone dating club box.

Her unique perspectives on arts, Japanese-natured expressions and visuals are well-received; the International Museum of Sweden has invited her to exhibit “neo 753 (HICHIGOSAN)”.

She also created an official logo and mascot character for “Crazy Kawaii in Paris”. Her live performances, a Double Tee Shirt project, representing body contact of two people, and other works have been broadcasted by various media.

These works by Shojono Tomo have been introduced continuously both to her home country of Japan and abroad through the costume design for Nicki Minaj, an American rapper, and collaborations with apparel and toy companies.
