This event has ended.

Yoshimi Ohtani was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1980.
She established a website for her hobby illustrations in 2000.
She gave birth in 2002, and concentrated on caring for her child for while.
In 2005, a great desire for creation came over her, and so she returned to her original passion, this time establishing a new style for her work using illustrator.
After that, she worked on cell-phone icons and backgrounds, books, magazines, interior decorations, and so on in the professional sense.
Spring of 2008, she start asking herself "what do I want to create?" At first, She made a new website domain name that means "fun" plus "arium" ... "Funarium", and started doing of exhibitions. For her creations, she combined a traditional mindset (Iki) with a sense of modern Japanesque "passive demenor (Wabi)", "elegant simplicity (Sabi)", and/or a "classic taste (Kare)".
The character of her works are a hybrid of Japanimation/comics and design/artistic expression.
