Maki Hosokawa records every day event with pictured diary. It is said that the character in her animated cartoon and comic style paintings is her self-portrait. Born in 1980, Maki belongs to the “Internet generation”, however, her imaginative expression steps across the generation gap. With her curiosity and naïve eyes, she presents a pleasant world full of joy. In 2004, Maki was the winner of Bronze Prize of GEISAI#6. Selected exhibitions: 2006, “Girl’s Mate”, Gallery Cellar, Nagoya; 2007, “Here and There”, Gallery Tengensha, Osaka, Tokyo Art Fair, Tokyo; 2008, “Multiplying: Maki Mode”, Bunkamura Gallery, Tokyo; 2010, “Oh!
