Tomomi Sato

Tomomi Sato was born in Saitama, Japan in 1970. She spend her childhood in Fukuoka, Nagoya, Yokohama. She was a quiet child who like reading books and drawing pictures. She got influenced by Munch during puberty. In 1988, Tomomi entered the department of oil painting at Musashino Art University. She looked for the core of art production and read various books such as philosophy, literature and psychology at the library. She could not accept traditional oil painting classical techniques, and also thought about the necessity of human experience as an artist. After graduating from college, she got a job at an advertising production company as a graphic designer. After that, in the work as a designer, she learned MAC and graphic software operating techniques.

In 2000, Tomomi became an independent freelance graphic designer. She started with designing work, writing novels and illustration production, starting production of digital art from 2005. She currently has exhibitions in Japan and abroad.

All her works are giclée prints. At first she prepares a drawing painted with a colored pencil or pastel color or a canvas painted with acrylic paint. Combine them on a PC, make it into a digital file, then she draws the detail with a pen tablet and finish it.

No matter how the times change and people evolve, she hope to feel the connection with people living in the same era, and people who lived long ago.
