Maneki Neko is an AI-facilitated artist who lives in Seattle.
She creates intricate, colorful, detail-rich art in a style she calls “Anti-minimalism”. Sometimes leaning towards the abstract or surrealism, her work often features flowers or inspirational women from folklore.
Maneki’s art is inspired from her need to find moments of peace from the many troubles of modern life through the pleasant distraction of exploring an image full of intriguing details. For the viewers of her pieces, she has one major goal: to entice them to simply stop and stare for a while.
Maneki’s work has been exhibited in Rome, Liverpool, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo and New York City and has been collected by more than 400 people since she minted her first NFT in February, 2022.
