ARTIST

Mishio

Born in Kyoto Prefecture in 1998. Based in Ishinomaki city, Miyagi Prefecture. After dropping out of an art university in Kyoto in 2017, he moved to Ishinomaki city in 2018 after he got involved in Reborn-Art Festival 2017. He founded “Oyasumi Teikoku (Good Night Empire),” his home/studio/gallery at Kiwamari-so in Ishinomaki and works there as an artist. Wondering around town, he draws faces on garbage that is left on the street and creates his work on the theme of “looking away from the visible world to escape to another place.”
