URINO Kiko’s Heart Beat

URINO Kiko [Japan]

© Kiko Urino / Shodensha FEEL COMICS

Born of the interaction between people, this work skillfully expresses the words that resonate in the heart at unexpected moments, or at times of comfort. All four stories link music to the subtleness the heart emits from the midst of human relationships. This work delicately expresses the thoughts of so many that live the modern life, and what they wish to convey, using richly textured and fine-lined facial expressions and sincere sentiments of communication.
