SHOXXX a.k.a. Shou
born in Hiroshima, one of 7 Japanese cities she has lived in. Since 2001 she has been working as graphic designer and illustrator.
In 2005 she moved to Berlin, Germany.
Here she started to create also her own artworks, such as puppet making, screen printing, live animation, painting, etc..
Since 2011 she has been living in her own atelier-studio space "SHOXXXBOXXX", where her creativity has flourished.
< as an artist >
Her exhibitions display puppets, drawings, hand-made decorations and more; composing colorful, funny characters in a pop atmosphere.
Though initially impressing a typical Japanese style, it derives its originality through cynical humor or extreme nonsense.
These installations of her work transport visitors to a SHOXXX's world, a place for the adventurous to bring their imaginations.
< as a musician >
In 2013 she founded a Berlin-based band and art project "Puppe'n Mucke" with musician Raving Mad Carlos.
They play trashy electro rock wearing huge hand-made original puppet costumes designed and manufactured by SHOXXX.
They mix electro beats and sounds with diverse instruments such as melodica, bongo, keyboards, bass and guitar, featuring guest singers and artists. The result is a very funny-to-watch-performance of crazy characters playing original enjoyable music.
