If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I have always been into drawing ever since I was little. My Art work is based on Japanese Calligraphy, Ukiyoe Art and Japanese Family Crests. I am also very into the seasons, each season in Japan has a vivid difference in color and is reflected in my art. Childhood reminiscences flavors my art.
About my artwork
During the creation process, the art talks to me, the most important thing for me to do is to listen to the piece. I closely communicate with my art while I am working. Materials for the art work are also very important. I won't be able to express my imagination without the various materials that I use for the piece. When you see my art work, you can see dynamic brush strokes and the characteristic detail in the work. My intention is to create new wave/style in art merging Painting and Japanese calligraphy.
I use various tools and materials, such as Spray paint and Washi-paper, However, most of my work is created using a Japanese brush and Sumi-paint.
Sumi-paint makes you a disciplined artist, as it is unforgiving of errors. Once the individual brush stroke is on the canvas it cannot be undone . One stroke creates it`s own style every time. I like that feeling.
I do not know if there is a finish line in Art. I feel like a runner who is waiting for the starting signal on the start line. When I begin a new piece, I like to start fresh, with a clear mind.
Primarily I create art for myself, though, naturally I would like others to enjoy it too. I want to keep creating art work both for myself and others.
