Yuka Masamura is a junior studying Graphic Design and Advertising at Boston University. She is originally from Japan, living in New Zealand, and loves to hike, travel, and meet people.  
Her journey and education across the globe inspires her to explore global exploration, animals and nature, co-existence and relationships, identities, and personal growth through art. Her art practice includes but is not limited to editorial and typographic design, exhibitions, photography, drawing, painting, and community art projects. She often focuses on the beautiful moments in nature that are fleeting and often overlooked, and those that unconsciously make us feel at ease and excited.
