Ayakoh Furukawa

I have been creating art for long time, yet I never forget fundamental question about Art.

Why do I make art? Is my art necessary to the world? Does my art resonate in people’s mind? What is the identity of my art? 

I always think about such things until I get tired of thinking. And then I start making art again. Laugh…The world we exist that is full of wonders constantly inspires me and I create art in response to it. Sometimes there is an unknown impulse from a deep part of my mind then I create art.
Art is life. Art is a pleasure. Art is beautiful. Art is difficult and burdensome. Art is a proof what makes human as fully human.

Ayakoh works and lives in Queens, NY. She received both BFA and MFA from Hunter College, CUNY.
