About me

Hi there, my name is Miki Saito and I'm a contemporary artist living in Tokyo!
Full time Artist. Part time ukulele, nature, and animal lover.

You can watch a documentary clip about my work here : http://www.celebtv.jp/2016/05/13/blossom-blast/

I was born in Japan, but have been constantly living between the U.S. / Japan throughout my life. I speak / write in both Japanese and English fluently. I studied at KIDI Parson (in Kanazawa) and earned my BFA in Fine Arts from Art Center College of Design in 2012.

I also voluntarily build a website called Artist Resource Tokyo to help out international artists visiting Tokyo.
