Seiko Kato is an artist living and working in Brighton, England.
She is an avid collector of found objects and ephemera. She finds particular inspiration in Victorian medical books, old Victorian etched drawings, encyclopaedia of things and Victorian paraphernalia. She cuts out all of her collage materials using a tiny pair of scissors.
Her work shows a fascination with the macabre and surreal, mixed with playful elements that explore life and death.
Born and raised in Japan, she is now living in England since 1999. She studied Photography at college and graduated from University of Brighton with BA in Illustration.
Seiko is happy to take commissions such as bespoke original collages, package designs, or any other surface designs (homewares, textiles, wall papers etc). Some of original collages are also available to purchase. Please enquire availability of works.
Limited edition prints can be purchased at Blind Stamp Editions
Seiko is represented by House of Juba
