I'm Niki Usagi, a UK based visual artist working as a freelancer since 2020.
My work is strongly inspired by people and urban thematics. I enjoy portraiture, the simplicity of everyday scenes and still life. I love dynamic moments, strong contrasts, bold colours and playing with light and shadow.
For my projects I mostly use papercut techniques and traditional mediums, but I'm also comfortable turning my ideas into digital imagery.
In the last couple of years I was lucky to work with a range of distinguished clients including The LA Times, Ben&Jerry's, Vox Media and Little Brown Book Group.
I'm usually open for commissions, please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
