Aki Hoshihara


Aki Hoshihara is a Japan born, Los Angeles based artist with a background in traditional Japanese calligraphy and intuitive energy work (“ki” or “chi” work). She studied calligraphy as martial arts in Kagoshima Japan from the age of 5 until 17 and later studied consulting hypnosis and spirit work with various masters in NY and LA.

For the Curtidas project, Aki explored the energy of humans as beautiful spiritual beings, while talking and looking through them, finding and shining the energy that was hidden from them at the time. She chose a different color of paper inspired by each person and drew images with sumi ink and watercolor generating energy portraits of each being”.
