Aiko Returns With Aquarius For The Flint Water Crisis Print Suite

We are excited to welcome back Aiko as she joins us with Aquarius as part of our ongoing Flint Water Crisis Print Suite! Joining the likes of Robbie Conal, Shepard Fairey, Brandon Boyd and Ron English, we are excited to kick off 2018's first release as part of the print suite and welcome back Aiko for her latest release. Each print in this series is almost completely hand-painted by Aiko, with each color individually hand-painted before a 1-color screen print. Each is completely unqiue and will vary slightly from print to print. Be sure to snag your favorite before it's sold out and help support two great organizations, as a portion of the proceeds from this release will help benefit the Flint Child Health & Development Foundation and the Michigan ACLU! Snag this print and please help support these organizations directly as well! You can find more updates from ACLU and Detroit Metro Times on the ongoing situation in Flint as we close in on 4 years since it has come to the forefront. . .

"Since this project is to help people who are suffering from water in Flint, I wanted to use this image of a girl with spirit of water. Like the angel of water; she is chilling in the glass of water. Water should be free and clean for everyone, we are all part of nature. I was working on this print throughout February hand coloring one by one, and it was period of Aquarius, zodiac sign, which is the symbol of the water server.  I also discovered that the word Aquarius actually referred to the public water system in ancient Rome. When I discovered what happened with the Flint Water Crisis I couldn’t believe that it was happening now, and I am very furious about how government cannot do anything with it. Shame, why people in ancient times were able to provide clean water to everyone but not in Michigan in 2018?"  - Aiko

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
AIKO was born and raised in Tokyo before moving to New York City in the mid-90s.

Already creating art since a young age, her art career in NYC began when she started working for Takashi Murakami. She apprenticed in Murakami’s studio in Brooklyn and worked for him until the late 90?s going on to a direct a digital biography on the artist (“Superflat” 1998). AIKO continued to practice her own art and after leaving Murakami’s studio graduated from The New School University where she finished her MFA Media Studies and later met up with two American artists, the three of them would come to establish the group now known as FAILE. Creating work within the collective locally and abroad for a number of years, she moved on and established herself as Lady AIKO in 2006.

AIKO continues to create work in the studio as well as public space. She is acclaimed in the contemporary art world and well-respected within the international graffiti and street art scene. She had a two-person show “Brick Ladies” with Lady Pink in Brooklyn in 2008, and she worked with Banksy on “Exit Through the Gift Shop” in 2010. Her large scale works indoors and outdoors are installed in many cities, including Miami’s Wynwood Walls in 2009, New York City’s Bowery Wall in 2013, and Coney Art Walls in 2015, all three curated by Jeffrey Deitch. AIKO has also been involved in a large collection of group shows, from “AnimamixBiennale” at Shanghai’s MoCA in 2009 to “Edo Pop” at Japan Society NYC in 2013, ‘Some Place Like Home” at Rumney Guggenheim Gallery NY in 2015 to her more recent solo show, “Sweet Heart” at The Outsiders Gallery in the UK in 2014.

AIKO has also been commissioned to create works in collaboration with Louis Vuitton, Coach, The Standard, W Hotel, Hello Kitty, Isetan and Warner Bros. etc.
