RIAKI は、自身の見た「夢」とその解読をもとに作品を制作しているアーティスト。絵画や版画などの「ビジュアル・イメージ」と、それを絵解きするヒントとなる「言葉」、そして「パフォーマンス」(作中人物は本人)の3つのメディアを用いて1つの作品を構成しているのが彼女の特徴。2004年に夢記録を開始し、以来、夢日記は彼女のライフワークとなった。2005年には夢タントラ研究所・加藤好弘のもとで夢解読を学び始める。2009年、アートと夢研究のため渡米。コロンビア大学大学院に学び、ニューヨークを拠点に活動。パンデミックを機に日本に拠点を移し、現在は、自身の米国アート留学体験を赤裸々に綴った「ニューヨーク美大生日記」や夢の小説など、執筆活動にも取り組んでいる。現在、夢タントラ学派代表。

2013年 コロンビア大学大学院 ヴィジュアル・アーツ科 修了


2005年 多摩美術大学美術学部 卒業


RIAKI is a Japanese artist who turns her dreams and dream interpretative practice into her art. The notable feature of her work is that she composes three different media --- 'visual image' such as paintings/prints based off her dreams, 'word/text' for the hints to de-cording the visual images, and 'performance' (she performs characters in her works by herself )---.

Her works has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, such as Revolution and Sexual Revolution Film Festival in Tokyo, LeRoy Neiman Gallery in New York City, Bakalar & Pine Galleries in Boston, Inside Out Museum in Beijing, Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina in Serbia and so on.

In 2004, she began to keep her dream journal. She started studying Tantric Dream Analysis in 2005 under Yoshihiro Kato who was the founder of Tantric Dream School. In 2009, she moved to New York. She received her MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in 2013. She lived and worked in New York City over a decade, then relocated to Japan after the pandemic. Currently, she lives and works in Japan. In addition to visual arts, she is getting into writing her 'dream' novels and 'New York Art School Diaries' which is her naked report of her international student life in M.F.A program in the U.S.
