    Ulala Imai

    Ulala Imai (b. 1982) was born in Kanagawa, Japan and currently lives and works in Tokyo.

Though the objects she paints are personal to her upbringing and her own memories, they are relatable and nostalgic to the viewer as well.

Her recent solo exhibitions include Lulu, Mexico City (2021); Parco Museum, Tokyo (2021); Nonaka-Hill, Los Angeles (2021); Uncle Brother, New York (2021); Union Pacific, London (2020); Oil Gallery, Tokyo (2020); Tokyo Opera City Gallery, Tokyo (2020); and XYZ Collective, Tokyo (2019).
