Natsko Seki was born in 1976, grew up in Tokyo, studied illustration in Brighton, and made her way to London where she now lives and works. Inspired by architecture, vintage culture and fashion from different ages and cultures, Natsko creates vibrant cityscapes and enjoys applying her friends and family members into her illustrations by collaging photos from her old family albums and her own photographs.
