Rikako Kagawa

RIKAKO is a cosmic artist who receives inspiration from the universe to paint.

She creates figurative paintings inspired by the universe, ancient civilizations, mysticism, religions, myths, and legends, as well as abstract paintings that depict music, images, light, air, and the energy of the natural world.


RIKAKO is also actively involved in live painting and mural painting in collaboration with artists.


And she is involved in the spiritual creation of "Spiritual Portrait," in which she draws the essence of a person through a reading.


She is also a sweets lover and has published a picture dictionary called "Chocolate Word Dictionary" (Seibundo Shinkosha), which introduces words related to chocolate with pictures and text.

As a writer, I write for books, magazines, and the web, and also works as an illustrator.

I publish a picture dictionary "Chocolate Word Dictionary" (Seibundo Shinkosha 2016) that introduces various words related to chocolate with pictures. The book has been translated and published in China, Taiwan and South Korea.

Realizing my mission, I devoted myself to my creative activities as an artist.

I continues to create my work with a cosmic sensibility.
