IOROI is a Japanese urban/contemporary artist based in Netherlands.
She produces a work that incorporate words. The theme of her expression is to throw queries directly as a visual message to human behavior or mind what we ignore though we should face in our daily life. It is a bit ironic but important element in her work to use the words to provoke connecting with something beyond words.
She believes that words are human beings themselves. Words have the power and the possibility to let us become better human and to find better life.
IOROI continues her activities without being bound to the frame from contemporary art to urban art.
