Japanese artist Fuco Ueda was born in 1979. She lives in Japan and exhibits there regularly, as far as I can tell from her website. I emailed Fuco to ask her permission to feature her on my blog and got this response:
Thank you for an email.
Unfortunately I cannot speak English.
Please forgive the thing answered in faltering English.
Thank you for your having been interested in my artwork.
I feel an email from you very glad.
I was interested.
And so I present to you some images of the whimsical surreal work of Fuco Ueda. My favourite one is last. Mmm funghi.
