< Biography >
Saeko Ehara is a Kirakira (sparkling) artist and VJ based in Tokyo. Her works mainly represent Kirakira. In her latest works, she explores combining AI and Generative Art. She keeps learning and exploring the expressions of Kirakira with multiple ways.
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.
Through her works, she would love to make the world full of Kirakira.
