Having been inspired by traditional Japanese stencil dyeing, Mayuko is self-taught and creates paper cutout/collage art. Mayuko's first artistic influence was Japanese traditional stencil dyeing. After years of experimentation, she found her current style of paper cutout mixed with collage. Her works are created with a cutting knife, paper and magazine pages or photos she takes, occasionally with Photoshop. She moved from Tokyo to New York in the autumn of 2010 and have worked on projects such as advertisement, CD packaging, carpet textile designs, newspaper columns illustrations, and T-shirt designs in the United States and abroad since then. Her work has been exhibited widely in the United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, and Japan at locations such as SOFA Art Fair, New York; Pulse Art Fair, Los Angeles; and UAMO Art Festival, Munich.
