Everything exists as the outside world originates from within myself. It is never the case that the inner world is a result of outside connection. Therefore, truth cannot exist in the outside. I must paint through my own perspective from my inner world.
While painting, I would unnoticeably reach a state of selflessness, as if the hand of God is making me paint. I experience a moment of bliss as a painter.
Every color has a meaning. Color is the life of my paintings. Painting is, in a sense, a process of arriving at the specific color in my mind that represent each shape.
Born and raised in the rich nature of Japan, I am devoted to nature belief and Animism. I believe that spirits reside in all things and always feels the beauty inherent in them. On the other hand, human beings are endowed with the power to create the world of their own imagination. I would like to create pictures of an ideal world with a fundamental beauty that I feel only I can see and convey it to people.
