Born in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture in 1994.
After graduating from the Japanese painting course at Kyoto University of Art and Design, he proceeded to the master's course at the same university and completed it.
Currently based in Kyoto.
I mainly draw on painting materials used in Japanese painting such as mineral pigments,Chinese ink, and nikawa with the theme of existence / recognition / common recognition / relationship.
The screen is composed of black and white and a wave-like pattern that combines various images. It will give the viewer an impression that is both abstract and concrete. The concrete image also changes depending on the viewer, and most of them are roughly divided into the sea and the desert. In some cases, it only looks abstract without having a concrete image in the first place.
These work asks what you see, what you think is really there, and if it is really there, where is it?

When I was little, I wondered why my self-consciousness was here and why this world existed, which I couldn't put into words well at that time. It was just a vague and sudden question without any trigger. And that question was always with me, neither it got small and big with my growth.
While I was in graduate school, when I was thinking about my own production theme, the wonder that was next to me suddenly started thinking deeply about my eyes.
The more you think about it, the more the question grows and creates new questions. Questions grow, such as where the "here" of I am here, where the world is, and what “exist” means to in the first place.

I have been fantasit since I was a child. It is play that I can dive myself in the inner story and enjoy it. And I used to draw picture that as a means to clarify and clarify the image inside and to enjoy this play even more.
It turned into something that helped thinking, not to help play. For me now, the act of drawing is one way to think, write, and interact with the philosophy.

“What is me, what is the world, what is existence?” I'm currently painting as a way to explore these.
