b. 1977, Tokyo, Japan. Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.

Ai Yamaguchi, initially trained in textile design, was inspired to paint on various textiles that have since developed into narrative paintings. Most recognized for her depiction of child-like courtesans with long fine hair and round turquoise eyes, she incorporates anime qualities with realism through the traditional Japanese painting style of “flatness”. Her artworks are strongly contemporary, infused with a rare sensitivity inspired by the artistic style of the late 17th century Edo-period, conveying an intensity that transcends time.
