Ai Ikeda

Ai Ikeda is a multidisciplinary visual artist from Nara, Japan. Ikeda is currently an MFA candidate in Painting and Drawing in the Studio Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Previously she earned a BFA in Oil Painting from the Kanazawa College of Art, Japan. In her early career, she studied Eastern and Western art history and philosophy, as well as classic and modern techniques. In her recent works, Ikeda tackles social issues and uses art as a means to reflect upon important matters, without abandoning aesthetic ideals. Her work has been shown in several solo and group exhibitions in Nara, Kanazawa, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, and Leipzig.
