ABOUT KAORI MITSUSHIMA
Kaori Mitsushima is a delightful illustrator of delicate and uplifting works. There’s a simplicity, and yet it retains a strong emotion – which is a difficult task to achieve. Those simple but strong lines reflect a deep connection to Japan, the place where she grew up. Kaori is a true international talent, currently based in Prague, Czech Republic but has lived in Tokyo, Paris, Berlin and New York City, working for a variety of international clients. Cats, various animals, nature, tourists (which she photographs), and women are major sources of inspiration for Kaori’s artwork. Alongside her commissions, Mitsushima created her own brand, called “Cats I Know,” which is a series of cat people that have been featured on prints, package design, a yearly calendar, and mural paintings. Her work and interviews have been featured by Urban Outfitters, Les Néréides Paris, The Interactive Design Institute and numerous websites.
