Ichi Japan, b. 1984

When Ichi was six years old, he started to cut out and paste things that he liked from magazines. He felt at peace while doing it.

Gradually he started to see a world that could only be understood by him, Ichi. He completely immersed himself in creating that world. Whenever he would complete something, he would experience a new level of excitement and joy. Ichi never stopped cutting and pasting since. He travelled the world working in cities such as New York, LA, Hong Kong and Paris. He started out selling postcards in the streets, but ended up showing his work in the Marriott Group Meridian Hotel in 2018 – something the young Ichi dreamt of while selling in the streets of New York.
