When and how do you start to create?
I like to draw pictures since I was a child. I started painting from around 4 years old and began drawing oil painting from 7 years old.
Do you went to an art school or self-taught?
I entered Musashino Art University department of oil painting at the age of 18.
Do you create as a professional or for your own?
I am drawing a picture with the intention of a professional.I am not sure of the boundaries between professional and amateur.
How do you learn and work your skill?
Although I was drawing oil painting during my college years, I had a sense of incompatibility with traditional Japanese oil painting techniques. Just around the time, I was fascinated by the popular advertising arts and I got a job at a design company. While working as a graphic designer, I learned the operation technique of graphic software.
What do you like in this art, your motivation?
What I liked in adolescence is Munk and Klimt. What I liked in the designer era was Takuya Onuki, advertising art director. In addition, I like Ogata Korin, Yokoyama Taikan, Hirayama Ikuo, Higashiyama Kai.
What do you want to express or arouse in those who watch your work?
No matter how the times change and people evolve, I hope you feel the connection with people living in the same era, and people who lived far away.
What are your favourite subject(s)?
I like to study English.
How do you prepare a creation or project work?
I am better at drawing with a mouse or pen tablet on a PC than drawing with a brush on a canvas. However, rather than finishing everything on a PC, I create textures painted with pastels and colored pencils on drawing paper and acrylic paint on a canvas and use it as a material to make digital art. Merge them on a PC, make it into a digital file, then draw the detail with a pen tablet and finish it.(All my works are Giclee prints)
What are your prefered moment(s) when you create?
When I was able to express deep emotions of my heart.
What are your most representative creations, and why? (links)
Birth (produced in 2018) The answer to what I had been asking for a long time ago was expressed in this work.
What are you trying to share via your art?
Transmission of ideas. Emotional sharing.
Who are artists that fascinate or give you inspiration? (links)
Higashiyama Kaii, Hirayama Ikuo, Yokoyama Taikan, Endo Akiko
What equipment and/or technic do you use?
Since I have worked as a graphic designer for more than 20 years, I am better at drawing with a mouse or pen tablet on a PC than drawing with a brush on a canvas. However, rather than finishing everything on a PC, I create textures painted with pastels and colored pencils on drawing paper and acrylic paint on a canvas and use it as a material to make digital art. Merge them on a PC, make it into a digital file, then draw the detail with a pen tablet and finish it.(All my works are Giclee prints)
How and why your work as changed since you started?
Since graduating from Department of Oil Painting at Art University, I got involved in graphic design. I was thinking how to tell by picture. I became freelance since 2000 and started producing digital art from 2005. The theme is changing from a style that trims familiar landscapes to social problems, problems of humanity, and so on.
What does the Internet media give you?
Sharing ideas, opinions, emotions with people around the world (people who can not meet in everyday life).
What are you expecting from Art Limited and/or other members?
An encounter that people who can understand ideas and feelings can be shared. Or meet people who will purchase my picture.
What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
"It would be better for you to draw a picture according to your own intuition and sense without being influenced by people's opinion," an art critic said.
If you couldn’t be an artist, what would you do?
I wanted to work in the United Nations. Or want to live in nature for research on animals etc.
What are your plans in the future?
I live in Japan, but I would like to open my exhibition abroad. I am trying to make the base of art activities Europe or the United States.
Do you have anything else to say?
I want to make friends with you.
