JUURI is a Tokyo-born Japanese+American artist currently working from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Her colorful figure-driven work is inspired by traditional Japanese art (especially bijin-ga and yakusha-e) interpreted through a modern fashion photography feel. She often references Japanese history, folklore, or kabuki plays as recurring themes.

JUURI's murals and art can be seen all over the US as well as overseas. Her clients include hospitality (particularly Asian restaurants), urban renewal initiatives, and high caliber international collectors.

1983年東京都町田市生まれ。2006年 Northeastern State University (Oklahoma, USA) グラフィックデザイン学科卒業。アメリカのオクラホマ州を拠点に壁画制作や絵画作品の発表、オリジナルファッション商品のデザインなど国内外で様々な活動を展開。伝統的な日本の人物とモダンなポップモチーフを組み合わせ、混沌とした世界に時代を超えた平和と慰めの感覚を伝えたい。Omni Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Netflix productions, EBIZO TV など数多くのコラボレーションでも活躍。

"My murals and paintings are heavily influenced by Japanese bijinga (artworks of beautiful women), yakusha-e (artworks of Kabuki actors), and modern fashion photography. As a 3/4 Japanese and 1/4 Caucasian person born in Japan and relocated to the United States at a young age, my entire life has been a combination of East and West. This juxtaposition of such opposing cultures was at times beautiful, and at times (especially when I was younger,) a struggle.​ My art is therefore my authentic way of deconstructing the inside of my mind and finding my way home to a place which is both excitingly new, and full of the comfort of my early childhood and original home."

(Japanese version)

私の壁画や絵画は、日本の美人画、役者絵(歌舞伎役者)、現代のファッション写真の影響を強く受けています。日本人と白人のクォーターとして日本に生まれ、幼い頃にアメリカに移住した私は、東西の文化と思想が混ざり合った人生を歩んできたのです。そのような対立する文化の狭間に立つ事は、時に美しく、時には葛藤の連続でした(幼い頃は特に)。​したがって私のアートは、自分の心の奥底を解体し、幼い頃の記憶と故郷の温もりに包まれた、全く新しい理想郷を探し出す為の手段なのです。
