Mirai Totoki - Bio

SOFIA MIRAI TOTOKI

Born in 1995 in Madrid, Spain.

Currently based in Tokyo, Japan.

Mirai Totoki is a japanese-spanish visual artist whose practice includes installation, sculpture, architecture, painting and photography. In recent years, she worked on architectural installations using materials like massive outdoor tarps, cement and plants. She explores the massive changes in the urbanization of the city of Tokyo, where constant demolitions and reconstructions are a usual landscape. She does so through the idea of empty space and those in the process of construction, both ephemeral and temporary.

She studied Fine Arts at Complutense University of Madrid. During this time she obtained an Erasmus Scholarship to study Base for Experiment, Art and Research in Arnhem (The Netherlands) at ArtEZ University of the Arts. After graduating in 2018, she moved to Tokyo to study Global Art Practice MFA at Tokyo University of the Arts. She currently lives and works between Tokyo and Madrid.
