Who is Ushimaru Saeki?

Her art is most certainly happy, unique, cute & erotic too. But who is Ushimaru Saeki? Born in 1986 in the town of Tochigi, this is one young Japanese artist who is doing everything in her power to warm the world with her art.
Graduated from the Art & Design department of Sakushin-Gakushin High School, she acquired her first experiences as an artist in her hometown, Utsunomiya. Then, in the fall of 2007, she moved to Tokyo. There she met a variety of artists, encouraging her to challenge herself and broaden her horizons. She began to look at art beyond the image, even trying her hand at gospel music.
In the winter of 2009, Saeki returned to Utsunomiya to work on the development of an arts quarter in the city: “Creating only what I can, I stand on the yet unwalked, unknown path, and I take a step forward. Steadily, drawn to myself.”
