One remarkable thing about ONEQ is as far as her artist career goes, she's all self-taught. She shares with Supersonic Art that she never went to art school but it's something she's thankful for as it enabled her to bend rules and navigate on her own.

She recalls in an interview her earliest memories of art and creating them which includes summers in her hometown she and her friends spend drawing, reading manga with her brother, and an old lady in the neighborhood with an impressive art collection she used to admire so much.

ONEQ didn't intend to make a career out of being an artist. But she has evernd we believe that ONEQ's works has every right to be on people's skin.

I think pictures never need translation. Even if the language is not understood, the picture can exceed time and speech and any one can enjoy it. Such pleasant things cannot be stopped. — ONEQ to Supersonic Art
