Kaito Itsuki

One of the central motifs of Kaito Itsuki work is her teapot image, referred to as a “K-pot,” in which K stands for “悲しみ/Kanashimi” (sadness) and “けじめ/ Kejime” (impact of strong decisions resulting from tragedies). Like many teapots, the K-Pot has a strainer, and when you put sadness into it, it catches elements to extract “Kejime.” The artist plays with this idea in her whimsical yet melancholy works.
