“I was born in Kobe city, Japan, in 1953. I studied drawing and painting at the Art Institute of Osaka Municipal Museum of Art and have exhibited in many solo shows and group exhibitions. I love oil paint, it’s texture, viscosity, slow-drying time and smell. I paint abstract”.
“I never know what it is going to be until it’s complete. When I start to paint, I always put some colours on the canvas without thinking. My choice of colours is often accidental or intuitive. I try to catch the chance meeting of colour with composition. Sometimes I get lost, and then other times I find myself walking along a path that brings me back to where I belong. Abstract is for me a concrete way to share an inner sense, place and time with you directly and deeply”.
