A collage is more than a random recollection of images, as shown by the mesmerizing work by Leeay Aikawa. The Japanese-born illustrator knows the right colors and shapes to combine to create visually attractive images. These illustrations are bold and vibrant, and they represent an aesthetic celebration of fashion and iconic pop culture characters.
Experimentation and risk are two noticeable aspects of Aikaws's portfolio. She mixes different fields like fashion, TV and film to create meaningful and electrifying media collages. Featured in magazines like The New York Times and The Atlantic Magazine, Aikawa has always been attracted to art and creation, which explains why she one time declared, "I want to be a creative person full of imagination." And her prints are covered from head to toe with rich imagery and colors.
Leeay Aikawa makes randomness look sophisticated and artsy.
