Junko Mizuno is a Japanse artist born in Tokyo. Currently residing in San Francisco, she is constantly working on new comics, paintings,illustrations, and designs for products ranging from toys to clothing. In 1996, Junko Mizuno self-produced a photocopy booklet called "MINA animal DX" which brought her to the attention of the publishing industry in Japan. Soon after, she debuted as a professional comic artist and illustrator. In 2007, she started showing her work in galleries in US and Europe. Junko's latest exhibition Triad is currently here in Brooklyn at The Cotton Candy Machine! Junko has shown with us in all five of the Tiny Trifecta shows, and with David M. Cook in March 2014. We're so excited to have her back!



Last night Junko Mizuno debuted her solo show, Triad. The show welcomed a huge crowd of her fans, from cosplayers, to collectors, to young kids. Triad illustrates three main characters created by Junko, the nurse, the wrestler, and the witch. The witch can be seen gobbling up meat while breast feeding her many children, the nurse is depicted performing abstract surgery, and the wrestler goes into battle against a whale. Each painting depicts a different part of Junko's fantastical story, that we're all hoping will lead to a new comic book by the great artist. Junk is very well known for her great story telling abilities through the art of comics seen in her great works such as, Pelu, Hansel and Gretel, Pure Trance, and Cinderella. The show was also covered by HiFructose Magazine! You can check out their coverage of the show here. Junko's show will be up until November 29th so be sure to check it out before it comes down! We have a lot of prints from the show for sale on our site here. Her original pieces in the show are selling very quick so try and grab one quick before they're all claimed for!
