I was born and raised in northern Japan where there is an abundance of natural beauty. The beautiful wilderness of my hometown and one significant awakening experience I had greatly influenced my spirituality and aesthetic sense that guided me to be a seeker and an artist.
When I was fifteen years old, during my regular early-morning walk in nature, the environment around me suddenly changed. Everything was shining as if all was in brilliant light. Through the silence, I heard all of nature speaking to me, imbuing me with their soulful sentience.
After that shocking day, I spent days trying to figure out how I could share this experience with the rest of the world and finally I found that creating art was the answer. Ever since, I have drawn inspiration from nature and my spirituality.
Both the spiritual journey and the art-making journey will never end. My art-making seek to share this never-ending journey with the viewers through my spiritual experiences. Informed by these experiences, I hope to create art that captures the true essence of all things—that there are no boundaries and that there is a Light ever-falling upon us .
This is one of my ” The Light ” series.
