【13-28 Sep 2018】
In a celebration of heritage and the power of a woman’s sexuality, ‘Hana Machi’ is an intimate exhibition by Japanese-born, London-based painter, SAKI&Bitches.
SAKI&Bitches is Japanese Street artist/painter/illustrator currently based in London.
She has a background in the fashion industry, having worked as a make-up artist for seven years in Tokyo, New York and London before switching from faces to the canvas.
As a self-taught artist, SAKI’s work/style grow from doodles on the back of scrap pieces of paper to full-scale portraits.
She’s playing around with multiple mediums over the years; paint, pencils, stencils, woodcraft and some sculpting.
Her work is unintentionally controversial and erotically sweet, it’s plain twisted.
Her glamorous paintings keep flirting around London!
An art exhibition in support of National Ugly Mugs (NUM).
Part of the art sales will be donated to NUM.
Their mission: ending violence against sex workers
