"KYGOMEI (Kaira Villanueva) is a Filipino-American artist. Her artistic inspiration stems from transient states that often induce anxiety. Her art draws from gray areas. She loves exploring the boundaries of science-fiction and reality. Growing up, her faith, ethnicity, and physical environment often felt airy and ambiguous. KYGOMEI attempts to capture the misty amalgamation of uncertainties from her identity into a romanticized macabre, often buried in fantasy and science-fiction.
She studied at Columbia University and graduated with a degree in human rights specializing in technology design. She was listed as a Forbes 30 under 30 for game design and was invited to speak and give design workshops at places like NASA, The White House, New York City Comic Con, Indie Cade, and more. "
