Her love for the visual came to her as a child when she watched drawings and movies, but her real influences are her love of colors and Japanese traditions. When she discovered digital photography and photoshop in 2002, a new world opened up for her.
Honoo’s undisputed expertise in digital image manipulation and photography, combined with her unique artistic outlook, makes her work come to life in a dramatic way. The images are virtual sculptures that capture moments of emotion in a different and highly visual way.
In an earlier interview she told the following about her images, ‘Sometimes I wonder where my images come from. When I am working on a digital image, I am totally absorbed in it. I laugh, I feel, I cry, I dream, I lose myself in it, I become it. It is this moment, this feeling of being one with my image, this is the roller coaster of passion for which I live.’
