KENZAN Shikisaisha Award Winner

I mainly produce Japanese paintings using traditional Japanese styles.
I use coffee on the screen to dye or color it. I am currently trying to make use of paper as a part of the screen, using the style of Japanese painting as the base of expression.

Artist Statement

I have mainly produced landscape paintings based on the main themes of “water,” “ghost,” and “universal.”
Incorporating perspectives from the occult and folklore fields, I am trying to express myself while considering the view of nature in Japan and the sense of distance from the other world and the supernatural.
