Stuffed animal artist Kataoka Meriyasu will be showcasing her work for the first time in a year at lamp harajuku. The title “Biodiversity” comes from her vision of creating stuffed animals without any restrictions. The title points out that there really is no theme. It has been awhile since Kataoka has been able to create with freedom, with no theme or collaborations.

Kataoka Meriyasu
Born in Tokyo, the artist began her career as Kataoka Meriyasu in 2011. Her work mainly consists of the creation of stuffed animals, moving toys and light-up toys. The adorable stuffed animals that she makes are not just for looking at, but for playing with as well. Kataoka has written puppet performances and shown them around Japan. She has also been writing a manga ‘Kataoka Ohennro’, since the end of 2014.
