By grasping the flow of the world and people from various perspectives and leaving them as works, I can control and understand my feelings and thoughts that change.
Currently based in Tokyo, he creates silkscreen and oil painting works. He is also the director of MATTER in Hanzomon.

Draws graffiti works that give the illusion of 3D using a silkscreen technique. It is characterized by a style with depth that cannot be found in the image of silkscreen, which was developed as a reproduction technique for accurately mass-producing a single illustration.
