Born in Kyoto. Graduated from Kyoto University of the Arts, Department of Information Design. Among 4186 entries from 52 countries, he had won the 5th prize (the 3rd in Japan) at Art Olympia 2015, an International Open Art Competition. He’s an active member and co-founder of the Kansai-based creative group “_act_” since its formation in 2014.
In his fine, dense artworks that are created with ink from a pen or a brush, he sets a contradictory limit of abandoning titles or motifs to establish complete freedom in the picture. In 2020, he released a series of pictures using photography to try to freely move around the essence of pictures.
