Naoko Horiguchi - Tutumu

This work by Japanese artist Naoko Horiguchi is so bright and cheerful – I just love it! Horiguchi’s motto is “to try out anything”, and a quick visit to her website proves that she does exactly that. Creating work in collage, inks, acrylics and rubber-stamps, her work is always fun and playful.

Personally, I love her pattern-based series tutumu+. “Tutumu” is the Japanese word for wrapping and Horiguchi says that these illustrations are printed on A3 kraft paper so they’re ideal for gift wrapping as well as for hanging on your wall. You can view the full set online here.
