Ichasu


I was flippin through Flickr a while back when some crazy trippy erotic cut and paste collage art jobby flew out from the screen. After wipiNg myself off and *ahem* inspecting the author of these,,, outrages, I came across Ichasu!
A like-minded pant rat to swap images with? No!!!
A nasty graffiti thug man-coward who objectifies women with his cut and paste? No!!!
Actually, a 22 year old university art lecturer! A lecturer! Fun, funky, fresh and guess what?…
FEMALE! OMG! OMG! OMG!
I immediately clammed up… meeting Ichasu, a woman, for the first time always does that tttttto little David Sausage. Women. Ive always found it so difficult to hold conversation with them. Mysterious creatures… With their,,, breasts. I was rocking in my chair chewing my knuckles hard as she came in… But wow with Ichasu, straight away we could talk international Eros until the cows came home! I talked and talked and walked her to the Tokyo graffiti shop and after giving her a crash course in can selection, we had more talk. I really talked to her. Now that I’ve actually talked to a woman about naked women without offending her in real-time, real-life I’m going to tell you all about it on my blog in cyber-space,,, where we can hide,,, behind a pseudonym,,, uh,,, look

1) Where does yourname Ichasu come from?
"ICHASU"は、本名を省略したものです。

2) How did you come to love drawing, cutting and pasting, painting and creating so much?
部屋で寝転がって手が届くものを切って貼って描いてつくっています。
そうしたら変なものが出来たりして、面白くなって続けています。
コラージュを多くやっていましたが、今はイラストや漫画を描いています。気まぐれに色んな方法を使って、
可愛いものとか変なものを表現していくつもりです。
つくること全部好きです。
3) You have a lot of erotic content in your work! It's unusual for a girl
to include so much in her work. It's cool, we love Eros here at chottomatte!
When did you start putting erotic things in your work?
What's the reaction from people?
2009年くらいから。
日本の古いエロ本(1970~80年代頃)などを使ってコラージュしています。
エロくないエロ本をつくるためのアートワークです。露骨なエロより少しずれたような、必ずしも男性向けでないようなものがつくりたい。
周りの大人は苦笑していました…ショック!!

4) Tell us about your cool new zine. Where can we buy it?
zineはほとんど作っていません。少し前に"completburger"に参加させていただきました。

漫画を一冊つくりました。http://www.flickr.com/photos/ichasu/5547068342
日本のトラッシュ・カルチャー雑誌"TRASH-UP!!"のvol.10に漫画が載る予定!http://www.trash-up.com/

5) What are your plans for the future?

12月にmogragと言うギャラリーで個展をやるよ!http://mograg.com/
将来は、コラージュや漫画やイラストをやりつつ、ブラブラしたい。

海外もいきたい。

沢山の人にみてもらえたら嬉しい!楽しく生きて最後は笑って死にたい。
