Born in 1979, Fuco Ueda (上田風子) is an artist from Japan who paints beautiful images of women in various states of surrealism.
Fuco paints with acrylic and powdered mineral pigments on paper, or on cloth on wood. Her gallery of paintings dates back to as early as 1998, yet surprising, the style and quality of works remain consistent. The heroines of Fuco Ueda’s paintings are often on the brink of danger. These beauties are at once victioms and agents. But whether the threats are self-inflicted or not, they make for fierce and beautiful narratives.
I love her works, psychedelic, surreal and strangely dark.
