Shiseido Creative

Shishido Creative is a brand created by Fil-Am PNW native, Mandy, and Taka, a Japanese immigrant recently transplanted to the US in 2019. We are both passionate creators whose intention is to share our authentic cultures through the lens of an AAPI and Japanese lens, unfettered by the Western Gaze.

Since beginning our brand in 2018, we recognized there was no end to kawaii style art inspired by Japanese culture, but Taka, being a native to Japan could always find so many ways the art was incorrect in its representation of Japanese culture, so we decided to create artwork that was very intentional in its accuracy, while still sharing it with those who are genuinely interested in our cultures. It is our honor to share and continue to study our Filipino (Mandy) & Japanese (Taka) heritage and history with those who wish to learn and appreciate it.
