ABOUT ME

Artist / Painter

 

 

  Born in 1981 in Gifu prefecture, and raised in Aichi pref. At the age of twenty, he moved to California, USA to pursue an art career. He spent four years in the Bay area doing live painting and participating in both solo exhibitions and art events. While living in San Francisco, he discovered a small group of avid bicyclists and became a bike messenger. It was through his experience as a courier that he found his essence of life and the conceptual basis for his art.
 

  In 2006, he returned to Japan. Initially he lived in Tokyo, where he continued to work as a messenger and became involved in the bicycle industry. He eventually relocated to Kariya City for two and a half years to focus on his artistic and business endeavors. In 2010, he spent eight months in Tochigi and afterward returned to Tokyo, then now he moved to a countryside where he can trail bike ride, surfing, and snowboarding. He is involved in art curating, illustration, company / collaborative projects, mural painting, and continues to exhibit his artwork worldwide, such as America, France, Australia, China, Mexico, Taiwan, and Sweden.
