Ever since I was a child, I have dreamed many dreams. A common theme that appears in these dreams are people, animals and trees with Spiritual Energy. In one dream, I dreamed of a person and some dead trees. When the person threw fruit filled with Spiritual Energy at the trees, they sprung back to life and began to dance. And the people,inspired by the vibrant trees and fresh air of nature,also became vibrant... The color of that space changed, and sounds could be heard. The world contained in that space was changing... I believe that good things, bad things, things that bring us pain,and death, which calls upon all living things,will all return to me one day as something positive. When I create works of art, althought it is never visible, I try to express Spiritual Energy, the source of "life". I create both paintings and sculpture from tha same perspective In the 1980's Andy Warhol commented to me that I had a unique sense of three-dimensional space and fascinating concepts. Even when I am painting, I always think about what would happen if the work I am to develop were in three-dimensionally. At present, I am active in New York,LA and Japan. Throughtout my art, I have conveyed a message of universality that is irrespective of country.race and religion. The concept behind my work is a blend of futuristic elements that reflect evolving science and machinery, and primitive elements such as life force and passion (energy) that reflect the more fundamental aspects of modern humans. Throughtout the mismatch that occurs when things with primitive meaning occur in modern form, I have created a style that enables people who see my work to recollect forgotten memories. I hope that people will be able to enjoy this experience through my work Works.
