Runa Ikeda was born in Japan, 1988. She is a multidisciplinary artist, and is currently active in various fields from music collaborations, graphic design, fashion to film. Since 2008, Ikeda has won several awards, and participated in both solo and group exhibitions in Tokyo, Toronto, New York and Berlin.
Ikeda's artistic style is visceral and instinctive; in her own words, "I spit out what I have deep within". Rather than drawing and painting what meets the eyes, she depicts her concept and feelings as creatures of fantasy.
