Kyoko Okubo's dolls and toys are made out of a material called "washi." "Washi" is traditional Japanese paper that is made out of tree bark, and such papers have been around since ancient China.

Featuring the dolls making different interactions with animals, as well as participating in a variety of activities, these Kyoko Okubo doll displays are definitely interesting to look at. Check out the featured gallery to see these pieces for yourselves.

Implications - Kyoko Okubo's art work is on the one hand diminutive and on the other hand, able to resonate with intensity. Okubo is certainly an artist that I admire and one to watch out for in the very near future.
