MY NAME IS 'Shojono Tomo'
Shojono Tomo is an artist who has the soul of an eternal child. (her name suggests “Friend of the Child”)
The adult with the soul of a child is a key theme running through her art works. 'child play' (SKINSHIP BARNY)
is her subject of her life from 2004.
SKINSHIP BARNY is a human El Nino phenomenon,that causes regulation abnormality in the body temperature
when love cannot be confirmed, and burns out because of its own heat,
Shojono Tomo’s art work is inspired by her imagination and view of the world.
This induces the creation of strong characters and use of colour that lend themselves very much to the mediums
of media, particularly TV and fashion. Her work is always carefully planned and crafted to achieve the desired
end result whilst retaining the integrity of her artistic vision.
An example of the commercial potential of Shojono Tomo’s artistic vision and practice is her enormously
successful “Enocdouter” wearable art range that sells in Japan and internationally.
★The serialisation in GOMES magazine, published by PARCO, of her column“Human Robot Sewing Machine”
was a turning point in Shojono Tomo’s life.
This legendary magazine famously lifted subcultures to the mainstream in Japan.
The exposure led to Shojono Tomo’s regular column on the PLAYSTATION fan site in 1997 cementing her
position as an important emerging artist and leading to further work in Film Animation,Fashion, Stage Art
and Comic Book Illustration.
Shojono Tomo continues to work in the arena of Contemporary Art including her installation
“Kimutakunology” at UP LINK FACTORY, incorporating mobile phone technology to create
a telephone dating club box and her installation using scrap metal objects at STRINP Theatre
in Osaka. These art works led to Shojono Tomo’s first collaboration with the British Art
Interchange Team, leading to further support by Japish to expand her work internationally.
The launch of her fashion brand PORNINVADERS in 1998 gave Shojono Tomo the opportunity
to bring all of her experience of Contemporary Art, Illustration and design came together for
the first time, leading the way for much of her work in the 21st century.
In 2004 Shojono Tomo became supported by the Bikousha Corporation to develop the brand
Enocdouter to sell throughout Japan and internationally.And she sometime collaboration with fashion company.
ShojonoTomo is invited to an international museum in Sweden in 2009?2011,and she is evaluated in Europe.
Furthermore, taking the opportunity of the clothes production of US 'rapper NICKIMINAJ in 2011,
""ROCKIN SHOJONOTOMO"" is sung in lyrics of song 'GIVEMEMONEY' of NIKI. ( support by SWEET STREET)
