Born in 1991, Ayaïro is a Japanese artist known for her vivid and nostalgic painting style. Her works symbolically depict young children in the background of the dwindling Satoyama landscape of Japan, where she was born and raised.

Her passion for her own roots is portrayed with genuine and colourful landscapes, mixed with adorable yet somewhat lonely images of children playing, evoking the viewer’s own reflection and childhood memories. In recent years, she is expanding her pursuit of "origin" with her new series focusing on the scenery of the good old Showa period as well as children themselves. With a desire to keep the good old pure, she continues to depict a pop world that combines nostalgia and modernity.
