Abstract Painting
I was born and raised in the countryside of Japan surrounded by mountains, green tea fields, and the Pacific Ocean. Influenced by organic materials and nature, I draw animals, lines and shapes mimicking natural elements and life such as the wind, plants and the ocean. For my abstract landscape, I use acrylic or oil on canvas. I transfer images of my memories into simple geometric shapes such as squares, circle or lines.
Specially, I draw many circles influenced by Enso (Circle in Zen). The shape symbolizes life, sun, light, spirit, peace, infinity, interminable, perfection, and continuance for me.
Realistic Painting (Portrait)
Since the pandemic started, I delved deeply into the status of humanity. I am interested in human and life. In my paintings “Japanese Guardian Lion” and “fro lisa”, I expressed their personality mixing with their portraits and animals. I have been studying European traditional oil paintings and influenced by Leonard Da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, as well as Kuniyoshi Utagawa, Japanese woodblock print artist.
