Maiko Kikuchi is a New York-based Japanese artist.
Maiko's practice was initially influenced by her father, who is a psychoanalyst. Through his work, she became interested in the boundaries between dreams and reality.
Making daydreams visible or tangible is a continuous theme of Maiko's work. She defines daydreams as another world that humans can bring into existence, walking the tightrope of so-called boundaries while questioning the “unusual” versus the “usual”.
