K:KO (Keiko Kikkawa) is a Japanese artist based in Warsaw, Poland. She has studied manga art and modern arts in Kyoto, as well as animation in the Czech Republic. Her illustrations are a mix of Japanese manga style and European culture, which she continually rediscovers.

This exhibition shows the beauty of the abandoned and destroyed buildings, as well as the images of women, illustrated in various forms, who enjoy the isolation and calmness of those ruins and devastated landscapes. To K:KO such places are a reminiscent of strength, brittleness and beauty at the same time. Ruins covered with the greenery express hope.
