Speciality: Interpretive d\Designs
Fresh off her artist visa from Japan, where she owned a nail salon in Harajuku, Mei has done collaborations with bands and worked backstage at Fashion Week. As one of the nail artists featured in MoMA PS1's nail art series, she determines where her art will go based on her favorite food, shrimp, nude paintings, and her dreams, saying," I really love translating these things into detailed illustrations." Highlights of her career include working with jewelry designer, Monique Pean, and artist, David Cook. "I haven't done his nails, but there are some fun things to come. I'd like to eventually do Madonna and Rihanna's nails." At the rate she's going, that's not too far off.
