Editorial Illustration

This article is about "Reversi game" designed  for people got disability such as blindness.
I drew Sun and Moon as players because they can't see each other. They are too bright to see each other then they need to play the game with closed eyes. Also I like the story about stars in the blue sky. They are always there but we just can't see. It means there are things we never able to see but truth is not always clear and visible. We tend to depend what we can see as visual but sometimes we need to doubt about what we see.
Is it really telling us pure informations? or is there something behind what we really need to know?

太陽と月を対戦相手にしたのは、太陽と月は、お互いが眩しくて見えないから目をつぶってゲームをしなければならないというコンセプトからです。わたしが、最近読んだ本に、昼間の星という言葉が、出てきました。それは、青い空に本当は、星達が存在しているはずなのに太陽の光で見えない。けれど、そこに星があるのは、まぎれも無い真実である。普段私たちは、目に見える事、情報に頼って生きていますが、目に見える事だけが、すべてではない。時に真実は、目に見えず私たちが、見えてるものを全て鵜呑みにしないで考えてからそれを真実なのかまたは、作られた情報なのか? 自分の心の目で見る必要があるのだと思います。

magazine cover for May issue

This issue theme is dress up for disable people. In my opinion, we can dress up whatever we want.
Of course, sometimes you need to care where you are. obviously you can't wear wedding dress at someone's wedding and same as funeral.. but otherwise, you can enjoy your own style. If you love one of your cloth so much but you need to wash sometimes for sure... anyway, I believe fashion make people little bit happier! if you feeling down, wear something colourfull you might feel bit cheerful !

Behind The Scene Nozomilkyway solo show

1st -3rd March 2012, I did the solo exhibition at Monty's bar in Brick Lane in London.
It was great experience to do the show by myself. I had lots of help and support from my friends.Many Thanks!

Press release

Nozomi Hoshikawa’s solo show, Behind the Scenes, presents a new series inspired by the dark side of glittering scenarios such as Circus and Burlesque, whilst maintaining the playfulness that is characteristic of both this universe and her own previous work.

In her suitcase assemblages, circus and burlesque imagery and characters are portrayed in their external beauty and playfulness. However, in her drawings she plays with the text to transcend this fantasy and suggest that the ability, and commitment, to shine and entertain might conceal a much more complex emotional life, neurotically oscillating between brutality and perversion, enjoyment and power.

Nozomi suggests that many metaphorical parallels can be traced between this universe and ordinary people’s lives. Not just in that everyone suppresses feelings, but also in the sense of not fitting in or not belonging, that here is exacerbated by circumstances- be it disabilities exploited in the freak shows of old circus tradition or in the nomadic aspect of the travelling entertainer. She suggests that these feelings might be experienced to some degree by anyone at some point in their lives. The artist tries to imagine the complexity of these artists’ life experiences, their reasons for working in such careers, their points of view and how this relates to her own personal interior universe.

I'm everywhere

It is about coincidence, when you hear something new or word that you didn't know.
It starts appearing everywhere. Is it coincidence or just you get attention for that word?
