Born in 1971 in Yokohama, Yoko d’Holbachie is inspired by popular culture in her native Japan and beyond. d’Holbachie’s paintings are at once vividly inviting and disturbingly dark; candy coloured creatures with wormlike tentacles travel through fantasy wonderlands. Elements of Kawaii, Anime, Pop Art and Surrealism blend together in tightly rendered works that pull the viewer in with bright, cheerful energy and hold on with strange, complex elements.
Though the artist wants her viewers to freely interpret her work, she cites often using butterflies and birds as symbols of reincarnation and using alchemical symbols as occult elements. She also uses Japanese legends and myths to create concrete subjects for her paintings.
