Setsuko Maho is an artist and printmaker based in Tokyo.
Most of Setsuko’s artworks are screen-printing. She’s been exploring the range of possibilities, techniques and methods available in screen-printing to produce artwork that fascinates. Expressing the three-dimensional world by layering blurred memories and scenes that gradually creates a shape, and this process is her creative spark. Importantly, the screen is her communication tool between her artwork and inspirations, with the secret conversation through the screen leads to an epiphany of new techniques with choice of colours.
Setsuko’s recent works ‘Cinema paper & chronicle’ are an art print series influenced by Eastern European vintage posters. These series are a record of a certain occurrence that was displayed in her imaginary cinema. With Setsuko’s taste for colours and shape, these artworks are constantly using motifs such as Cyrillic alphabet and numbers. Her print posters are a medium that allows all visitors to exchange and communicate about they see and their vision of art.
