Chiho Harazaki was born and raised in the countryside of Japan. After moving to the US and discovering tape art in college, Chiho became fascinated with using various kinds of adhesive tape for her art. Tiny pieces of tape, cut by precision knife and scissors, create each detail used to compose a whole picture. Her works are at times evocative of traditional arts such as woodcut and paper cut, while other pieces fuse Western pop art. Her exploration of tape art includes work in small and large scale, in two and three dimensions, and on various kinds of surfaces, often embellishing objects with intricate patterns. Informed by her experiences living in both Japan and America, Chiho’s subject matter includes a variety of cultural, historical, and narrative elements as well as social comment.
