Fumi Nakamura was born in December 1984 in a small town called Shimizu outside of Shizuoka, Japan. Fumi grew up surrounded by beautiful mountains and the ocean and this environment has had a lasting effect on her work. She moved to the United States just before her 12th birthday with her mother and brother. Fumi spent her middle school to college years in beautiful Northern California where she graduated from San Jose State University with a BFA Pictorial Arts degree in the fall of 2007.

Fumi currently lives in the New York City area where she works as a freelance illustrator and designer in addition to being part of Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki production company. Her work has shown the world over as well as taking part in the prestigious Semi-Permanent design event in Australia (2005).
