Saeko Ehara is a Kirakira (sparkling) artist and VJ based in Tokyo. Since she graduated from KABK in Den Haag (NL) in 2010, she especially has worked on making visuals and doing operations for concerts in the entertainment world. She mainly works at the arenas, concert halls and live houses throughout Japan. She started making and presenting artworks again because of her study for creative coding at the Digital Hollywood to improve her career.
Her works mainly represent Kirakira motifs such as jewels and flowers. In her latest works, she gets inspired by the Japanese Anime, which she watched when she was a kid and also uses images by AI.
Her inspiration comes from memories and joys of her childhood. She was into drawing, collecting Kirakira cards of her favorite Anime, stickers, toys, acrylic jewels, small glassworks and reading illustrated books of flowers. She was so enthusiastic that she always forgot the time passed when she did her favorite things.
She keeps learning and exploring the expressions of Kirakira with multiple software. Through her works, she would love to make the world full of Kirakira and joy.
