The Toko 8x10 Original Cut Paper Artwork - Art & Wall Decor


One of a Kind item
This piece was inspired by Toko Shinoda, a Japanese artist whose work merged traditional calligraphy with modern abstract expressionism. For this piece, no details were missed. The blue washi paper was carefully creased to create a sheer and delicate watercolour effect. Additionally, I cut thin lines into the black paper to create a “brush stroke” effect. The intention is for the piece to feel loose in form, invoking a sense of spaciousness and freedom.

“ My works are all delicate — just one little part keeps it all together. If one line went just a bit wrong, if the color were a little darker, it would not be what I was trying to show. My works are all like that. They are fragile.”
-Toko Shinoda

Fact about Toko: Her work was honoured on a postage stamp in Japan. She never married- considering herself "married to her work".

Elevated playfulness for the young at heart

Hi I’m Anita, but you can call me Neets. I am a mixed media artist/ illustrator and I create artwork that is playful and warm- for the young and young at heart.

A lot of my artwork uses hand cut washi paper; and, as a result, my process is a thoughtful homage to the inner child, imperfection, and slow living.

Just like when chefs make a gourmet meal from farm to table ingredients, I recognize that the paper I use was handmade, its fibers grown on a farm cultivated by the hands of many workers. It took a lot for it to get here in my hands and it’s an honour to shape it into artwork.

I release one to two thoughtfully designed collections a year. At the heart of each collection is a deep curiosity. Whether it's a concept I want to explore, or a topic about which I would like to learn; each original piece is a love letter to wonder.
