Born and raised in Tokyo, 1991. As a toddler, Ayaïro was so absorbed in drawing that she always carried around a drawing pad and a pen, surprising everyone around her with how quickly the pen ran out of ink. Growing up, she became captivated by Western films and music, which led her to major in the English language at university. Being exposed to diverse cultures on a daily basis, she gained an understanding of the beauty of her native homeland — which she had not fully appreciated before — and started expressing her affection for it through painting.
Being self-taught, her painting technique consists of acrylic and a pen. She strongly believes in the energy that color brings to people’s lives. Her simple illustration-styled art with bold lines is inspired by Japanese Anime and Manga, which she loved as a child. To create timeless art that makes the viewer feel joyful and uplifted – this is the wish that lies at the heart of Ayaïro’s creative process.
