Using a variety of techniques such as painting with acrylic paint, three-dimensional modeling, and video, he uses motifs such as an unidentified character whose creator is unknown, a huge torii gate that he stumbled upon by chance on his travels, and scenes that make him feel uncomfortable. and create works. It is said that the essence of things comes to the surface when the real image blurs and the shape becomes ambiguous, like a feeling of dizziness. The viewer's sense of equilibrium is shaken by the screen composition that appears to be established at first glance, such as by drawing motifs in a nested structure, but is actually broken. This shows the immeasurability hidden in everyday life. Viewers are puzzled and, in the midst of their hesitation, find a way to escape from the common sense they are usually trapped in. The artist name "Wimp" means a weakling. In an increasingly severe world, even weaklings can live without being bound by anything. For that reason, it affirms human “doubt”.
