A design depicting the symbol of Japan, “Mt. Fuji”, which I have long been thinking about. Its characteristic colors and textures create a surreal scene.
Miku Tsuchiya, who is active as an artist, has passed the baton of production to Yukina Ieda, an illustrator and graphic designer. It was an introduction through a mutual acquaintance, but it seems that they knew each other’s works for a long time. A new design with a completely different style was born, although there is also a common point that they are from the same Aichi.
From now on, the baton will be passed to the next creator, and new production will begin.

About “CREATORS CIRCLE”
Entitled “CREATORS CIRCLE”, this is a relay project in which wallpaper is designed by handing batons from creator to creator through introductions. We aim to create new wallpaper for interior spaces through this project, considering the participation of creators in various fields such as three-dimensional expression, video expression, and product design, regardless of the two-dimensional expression. In November 2020, three people, Hideyuki Yamano, a graphic designer who hosts “TAKAIYAMA inc.”, Ryu Mieno, a graphic designer based in Kyoto, and Maki Onishi, an architect, started.
Each of them introduced the next creator, and up to now 10 people have produced unique creatives.
