Araki Koman (b. 1987) is a Designer & Illustrator from Paris, currently living and working in London.
-
Araki was drawing and creating constantly as a child but stopped from 16 to 26 because of insecurities. Embracing a minimalist mindset while living a nomadic lifestyle gradually helped her recover from that creative block. Today, when she's not drawing for clients around the world, Araki shares her experience, discoveries and insights to help and inspire art enthusiasts express themselves confidently and authentically using the power of minimalism.

She has lived, worked and studied in France, UK, China, Canada, Iceland, Denmark and will relocate to Japan, her soul country, in Autumn 2018.
