The trigger for starting art -the trigger for art-
After returning from Rwanda in Africa in 2016, he started painting in earnest. Based on the themes of African animals and people, East Asian dragons and phoenixes, he creates colorful pop art works including fluorescent colors.
In addition, he is engaged in a wide range of activities such as live painting, large-scale works such as murals and ceiling paintings, and workshops on "coffee painting", which he started using when he was in Rwanda because there was no paint.
Motivation for making works -motivation-
I would like to continue my work and activities to give wisdom and energy to people all over the world and support individual challenges.
Dream as an artist -dream as an artist-
I want to connect the world through ART. As part of its activities, from educational programs that teach painting to children suffering from poverty, to purchasing and commercializing works, to give "small artists" around the world the power to open up their lives with art. Project "heART" is also presided over.
Keep giving people problem-solving wisdom and energy
