Finding a balance between manga and art, Mahomi Kunikata’s work is deeply personal and psychological.

Heavily influenced by the otaku culture of sexually explicit manga, Kunikata’s work adopts the genre’s conventions to explore and communicate issues of abandonment, masochism, and depression.  Often filling notebook after notebook with nightmarish depictions of cruelty, Kunikata’s personal drive to produce drawings overpowers the careful, methodical approach necessary to produce a professional comic work.  The result is raw, powerful, and innovative.

Introduced to the art world through Takashi Murakami’s GEISAI event and its precursor Geijutsu Dojo, Kunikata has shown her work in several group exhibitions internationally, including Little Boy at the Japan Society in New York and J’en Rêve at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris.
