"Contemporary" X "Tradition"
My art evolves as I search through my roots and history of art.
I find the beauty in the merging spot of "now" and "then".
My focus is to find the merging spot of "Contemporary" and "Japanese"
that is continuously fluid.
By artistic practice, I can be free to be nobody at the sometime be part of everybody.
