"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."
Meet the artist
My name is Tomo. I am a certified, professional Makeup artist majoring in special effects. I studied Fine Art and Illustration at Columbia College Chicago. I attended Makeup First School of Makeup Artistry. Ever since a young age, makeup has always been my one passion in life. I strongly believe in expressing oneself in any way possible. As an artist, I am inspired by many things. I am heavily inspired by Japanese culture, horror/gore films from the 1950's-present, Hinduism and other religious iconographs, street art, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, Goth culture, Monster High, Japanese artist Nara Nishitomo, and more. Every day there is something new to inspire me to create art. I believe the face is a blank canvas. And as an artist, I must create art on the face. From beauty to grotesque, I can do it all.♥
