Motto -motto-

I don't have anything in particular, but Coco Chanel's "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove just one accessory" is something that comes to mind.

Works Theme -the theme of making a treasure-

At first, there were many satirical works that included black humor, but since the beginning of 2021, from the perspective of my own sexual minority, I have been focusing on the themes of "what is love" and "what is sex". By drawing original creatures that did not exist or do not exist in the past, we aim to create equal paintings that are not bound by gender or race.

Dream as an artist -dream as an artist-

Specifically, I would like to decorate the cover of JUXTAPOZ. Of course, I want to become a pop icon as a writer, as well as my works.

The trigger for starting art -the trigger for art-

When I graduated from high school, I started looking for a job, but I didn't want to do a "normal" job, and I wanted to go to Tokyo, so I looked for a design-related company. After joining the company, I had the chance to learn something about design, and I also encountered art.
Enrolled in Tokyo Designer Gakuin Art Department and experienced art in earnest. After graduating, I decided to study abroad in Canada and Toronto for a year. After returning to Japan, in the summer of 2019, he started working as an artist based in Tokyo.

Motivation for making works -motivation-

I would be happy if my work quietly snuggles up to someone's life and colors it as one of the colors of that person's life.
