Akishi Ueda is known for art that evokes a sense of nostalgia and melancholy. Influenced from a young age by diverse forms of art, music, and cinema, Ueda found particular inspiration in J-Pop Surrealism. This genre approaches Pop Surrealism from a distinctly Japanese perspective. This influence is evident in his range of works, from endearing to unsettling motifs, often featuring fantastical creatures.
Initially active primarily in the Japanese art scene, Ueda gained international recognition in 2019 by winning the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize sculpture category. This accomplishment served as a gateway to extend his artistic activities into the English-speaking world.
