NIKY ROEHREKE

 

Roehreke is a German/Japanese artist and illustrator born and raised in Tokyo. She used to create commercial illustrations and animations for fashion brands and the music industry, but after living in Tokyo, London, and New York, she wearied of city life and her commercial work. She left New York in summer 2014 and has since lived in the woods in a camping car on Orcas island, an apartment in Berlin, a van traveling across Japan, a village in India, and the Peruvian Amazon.

She now views her art as a tool for social change and peaceful activism. She enjoys working on projects that connect humans and nature, local projects, murals in public spaces, and environmental projects.  And while she is back in Tokyo these days, her vision has not changed. She is currently working on a children's book about humans, nature, and the nature of true happiness.
