Born in 1978 in Tokyo, Japanese artist and designer Aki Goto studied textile art at Tama Art University. Goto quotes imagery from fashion, entertainment and subculture magazines and makes drawings that emphasize gaps and distortions created by globalized pop culture. She is part of a group of collaboratives including Yuki Kimura, Yukinori Maeda and Teppei Kaneuji, who are articulating a new Japanese conceptualism through the use of unconventional yet simple materials, fractured form and environmental design. Aki Goto's paintings and drawings are presented by Take Ninagawa gallery in Tokyo. She currently lives and works in New York.
