Born in Montreal, Canada, in 2002 from a Japanese mother and Lebanese father, Mizuki Khoury (he/she) spent her life daydreaming about being a famous artist in Tokyo, living a quiet life in the suburbs. A self-taught artist, his earliest memory is of him drawing with his mother. In October, she moved toTokyo to pursue her childhood dreams. Under the name of Exit Number Five, her art is equivalent to a diary and she talks about heartbreak, gender and LGBTQ issues, nostalgia, fame and obsession. 

Exit Number five takes the name after an exit at the Meiji-Jingumae subway station, in Tokyo, which opens up to Harajuku, Mizuki's favorite place on earth.
