A B O U T

NOKO aka PAPERTRUMPETS

I’m an award-winning art director, artist from Japan. Living in Melbourne. My solo material has been exhibited in art galleries around the world and profiled in various magazines.

My latest collection is inspired by found objects from gardens, and is mostly collage and sketch based. It is being showcased at Kotori Hanaten gallery in Tokyo in March 2016.

I’m involved in websites, games, publishing, and TV. I’m currently employed as a senior designer at Two Bulls, working on a variety of international design projects. Before joining the team, I spent six years working as a graphic designer illustrator for ABC, creating award winning games and websites.

What else? Well I’m originally from Japan, but have been based in overseas for several years. I like riding my bike along the creek.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
