Just as I am a fusion of two extremely different cultures, my art is also a fusion of several opposing themes: war and beauty; pain and luxury; inner struggle and peace. All these ideas are then visually interpreted through my uniquely Japanese-American understanding of the world. Japanese history, fashion, and tales of uncommon valor also influence my current work.
I hope that viewers are both spellbound with my images and feel a sort of brotherhood with the paradoxical themes— a reassurance of the importance of individual stories, especially stories that do not fit into the usual prescribed boxes that society dictates.
JUURI is a Tokyo-born muralist and artist currently working from Oklahoma City. Her work is inspired by paradoxical themes such as war and beauty; pain and luxury; inner struggle and peace. All these ideas are then visually interpreted through her uniquely Japanese-American understanding of the world. Historical elements, delicate faces, and flora are all a key part of JUURI's instantly recognizable aesthetic.
Her murals can be seen in Oklahoma City area; Newark, NJ; Orlando, FL; Lynn, MA; Houston, TX; Virginia Beach, VA; Lafayette, IN; Harrisburg, PA, San Diego, and overseas in Israel. Collectors of her artwork include restauranteurs, models, TV stars, and global philanthropists.
A limited number or original artworks are available to collect via the store. Prints of her work are stocked by DNA Galleries (Oklahoma City), and Thumbprint Gallery (La Jolla, CA).
