Subay (she/her)

Subay is a Shibari artist and founder of Kokoro Studio in Hong Kong. She is now based in London. Subay was first introduced to Shibari eight years ago when she was fascinated by its aesthetics, eroticism and emotions. She spent the first few years exploring and learning the different styles from several well-respected nawashi in Japan. In 2014, she met and was deeply inspired by Yukimura Haruki sensei. Afterwards, she dedicated herself to the study of traditional Japanese style. In 2015, Subay met Naka Akira sensei and chose to focus her study on sensei’s style of semenawa. She continues to explore her own style of semenawa which is both feminine and inclusive. In March 2018, Subay had the honour of performing at Onna Matsuri (おんあ祭り) in Tokyo. In November 2018, she had the privilege to tie at Naka sensei’s satsuei-kai (縄奈加會緊縛撮影会) and in November 2019, she assisted Naka sensei in his workshops in San Francisco. In 2020 and 2021, she presented in the two Queerope conferences hosted by Karada House. Subay teaches and performs internationally, including Asia, Europe and US. Her teaching focuses on the “why”, the feelings, the emotions, and provides insights on the perspective of both the rope top and the rope bottom.
