Artist Profile: Moki’s Hayao Miyazaki-inspired surreal paintings


We recently checked in with Hamburg-based artist Moki, whose acrylic paintings we admired earlier last year and were pleased to be introduced to her fantastic paintings on wood! Inspired by Japan’s Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away), Hamburg-based artist Moki’s acrylic paintings feature humans merged in cold, serene northern landscapes.

Moki describes the landscapes as isolated Scandinavian and Icelandic terrain, a subarctic frozen lake continent, untouched caves and moss meadows, and mountains sculpted into anatomical shapes by wind and water.”

Her second book, How to Disappear features both color and black and white illustrations and is available at Ginko Press.
