Express Japanese Beauty by Japanese Painting

-Theme of my art-

I express my pain and sadness which I felt during my childhood, considering current difficult situation of modern society at the same time. While desire and hate of human being is increasing, I would like to complain pain and sadness incurred by them through my pictures on behalf of children, animals and plants who cannot speak to them directly. I prepare my works to wish the world would be filled with full of love and peace.

I’ve expressed beauty and tradition of Japan through my works. However, during my stay in Kazakhstan, I felt some sense of discomfort toward my works, and found that this feeling is come from my wish that I would like to be a painter who can express the things, not being bound by race or country of individuals, nor “Japanese” style. After finding this feeling, I decided that I focus on “my origin of drawing pictures” considering the first moment when I started to paint in my childhood. Since my memory during my childhood is not the one which was very happy, and it brought me pain and sadness, I had sealed this feeling for a long time. However, I screwed up my courage and came face to face toward this feeling, and it brings me a new motivation to draw pictures.
