Araki Koman (b. Paris, 1987) is a nomad Illustrator & Designer.

Using raw lines, organic shapes and a limited colour palette, Araki uses her minimalist style for commercial commissions as well as for her personal work which is informed by her strong interest for spirituality, slow living, folklore, visual anthropology, somatic practices and her multicultural experiences. Her wish is to inspire people to slow down and live more intentionally.

She has exhibited her work in Paris, London, New York & Sapporo and has lived, worked and studied in France, UK, China, Canada, Iceland, Denmark, USA, Japan and Indonesia.

Araki is also the founder of PRECIOUSIMPLICITY, a plateform (podcast, blog and city guide) celebrating simplicity, minimalism and sustainability in creativity.
