Graduated from Tama Art University. Set up a design studio with a friend, working with Water Studio created by Naoki Sakai, FranceBed and others.
Later fell in love with kimono designs and worked at a battik studio designing kimono.
Born and raised in Akabane, downtown Tokyo with hardly any greenery. Longing and passionate about nature, I decided to live as a farmer in the countryside. I spent 10 years waking up at the crack of dawn and toiling in the soil before losing the battle to the wild nature.
Nature is full of thrills and wonders. It impresses me to no end and fuels my imagination. I’m deeply moved and inspiring power of nature rather than be content with merely depicting what’s there.
I attempt to recreate the spirit of nature, the desire of nature, the dream of nature, and the ideal of nature.
I’m particularly drawn to the world of plants and insects- sometimes taking other’s lives in order to protect one’s own.
Yet other times, helping each other survive through the harsh cycle of life, something we human beings fail to see.
I aspire to portray the mysterious shapes and colors of nature, what we see and don’t see.
