BIOGRAPHY

Works mainly in Tokyo.

In today's visual information society
everyday memories are overwritten, whether consciously or unconsciously.
When I recall fragments of these memories morning and night, replace them with colors, and superimpose them
The screen appears in a way that even I did not expect, and at the same time, it makes me feel nostalgic.
From a work that seems to reflect the days of my life
It may also evoke other memories and sensations in the viewer, which
I hope it evokes something in you
I continue to create for my work to be a painting as a place of tolerance..
