Born in 1980 in Chiba Japan, and have now made Tokyo, Japan his base. Artist Statement Shifting Consciousness. I explore the causes of my attraction to an object, and then create a work of art using the shapes and colors I find as a result. The abstract works, shaved down and simplified, pose questions to the viewer. These questions prompt the viewer to think, and even if only slightly, to move their consciousness away from the situation of “now”. This is to enjoy "thinking" itself. It is similar to the feeling of living in an "extraordinary" world; a world other than reality, such as the same feeling when you go to the movies or travel. In ancient Japan, festivals and Sake were prepared for the "Hare" (extraordinary) days to get rid of the “Kegare" (bad things) accumulated in daily life and to gain vitality. However, the glamour of the festivals and the Sake that had been part of the "Hare" (extraordinary) days became part of the daily life. Therefor, the "Kegare" (bad things) could no longer be removed. Shifting consciousness becomes a tool to enter to the "Hare" (extraordinary) days in its original meaning. PRIZE/SELECTED 2017 Rise Art Prize highly commended, United Kingdom.
