Niky Roehreke is a German/Japanese artist born and raised in Tokyo.
After studying in London, Niky lived and worked in New York for 5 years before moving to Orcas Island, WA in 2015 to live in a small airstream in the forest. Now she lives her nomad life painting murals and canvases in cities and forests of Europe, Japan and the US.
There is an immediacy in her work that urges the viewer to engage with art as a process, not just a product.
Along with her work in commercial art and animation, Niky is cultivating more personal projects and fosters a growing interest in art as a tool for social change and peaceful activism. Art, she believes, is the most compelling means to address the urgency of our time and to engage in thoughtful reflection of the growing need for a healthy planet.
