Born 1981 in Tokyo. Currently resides in Tokyo.
Painter. Using whatever is at hand, such as tape, pens, dirt, dust, leaves, white paint for road marking, and other materials, and not limiting himself to canvases, he also has used sugar cube wrapping paper and paper napkins for drawings, or mud and white road markings for his large-scale murals and geoglyph series. This artist works with all places to create uninhibited pictures.
