Currently based in Tokyo (JP), Ranko is a multidisciplinary artist and creator.

With a bright palette of colours and an obsession with shadows and lights, Ranko depicts the overwhelming awe she feels when looking at the world — from detailed patterns found in nature, ancient myths to popular culture figures — always searching for the magic present in our everyday surroundings.

Besides visual arts, she is active through her upcycled jewellery and apparel brand, where she hopes to spread a little bit of love and playfulness through her wearable creations.

Ranko is also part of Cosmos People, an art collective founded with Risa Iizuka in 2020 and which aims to share their childlike curiosity and admiration for the world through the creation of self-published zines.
