In her 2021 Solo Exhibition, “Bonsai” at BLANK Koenji, Ward presents a collection of 27 new watercolor and ink artworks. The series uses bonsai trees to ask viewers to think about “human design,” and to enjoy the humor in the art while wondering why we find certain design worthy of admiration and display, while other design we all but ignore.


Erica Ward is a California-born, Tokyo-based watercolor artist. She takes inspiration from Japanese design and often uses Japanese motifs in her work. By arranging everyday sights and objects in surreal ways within her artworks, Ward asks the viewer to consider the mundane daily objects in their surroundings as things of beauty and symbols of culture.
